Toure’s Agent Denies Contract Stunt

Yaya Toure’s agent has rejected claims that recent comments about the Manchester City midfielder were made to engineer an improved deal or a move.
On Tuesday Dimitri Seluk said Toure may leave City because they showed him a lack of respect on his 31st birthday.
But Seluk told BBC Sport: “People think we did this because we want to change the contract, to make more money.
“About money, the contract is OK. For us the most important is attention from the club to whom Yaya gives a lot.”
Toure, who joined City from Barcelona in 2010, was linked with a return to the Catalan giants when Seluk made his initial comments on Tuesday.
He said the Ivory Coast international claimed he was ignored by the club’s owners when the squad arrived in the United Arab Emirates to celebrate their Premier League title triumph and was “very upset”.
The midfielder has said he could be playing for another club next season and added he would resolve his future after the World Cup in Brazil. Ivory Coast are in Group C alongside Colombia, Greece and Japan.
