Yaya Toure Turns Down £430,000-A-Week Offer From China

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has turned down a £430,000-a-week offer from China according to BBC Sport.
Toure whose Manchester City contract expires at the end of the season earns about £240,000 per week at the club.

According to reports, the midfielder has rejected a huge offer from China to remain at City until the end of the season when his current deal expires with the club.

Yaya Toure

The 33-year-old got offers from China in 2016 summer but he decided to remain with City.

The offers came again in the January transfer window but the former Cote d’Ivoire international has decided to remain at the club.

This is a surprise considering his fallout with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola in the beginning of the season.

Toure was frozen out of the team by Guardiola over comments his agent made about the manager and the club.

Toure, however, has returned to the squad and is currently enjoying a run of games for the Citizens.
