Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure could leave the club at the end of the season to join sister club, New York City FC. Daily Star believe Toure is the prime candidate for NYCFC as they plan to replace the retiring Andrea Pirlo in December.
The Ivorian has already assured himself of legendary status at the Etihad Stadium, and a move stateside would allow him to remain within the illustrious City Football Group with New York City being owned by City’s owners also.
City’s links with New York City are evident with Toure’s former team-mate, Patrick Vieira, the current boss of the MLS side.
Toure signed a new one-year contract with City in June and is unlikely to stay beyond his deal after finding first-team opportunities limited due to City’s clutch of talent in midfield.
Italian international Andrea Pirlo is retiring from football when his current deal expires with the New York City in December, but would Toure be the ideal replacement for the departing Italian?
