Crystal Palace Prepare Yaya Toure Offer

The Ivorian is willing to take a massive pay cut so he can remain at a Premier League top six club and come up against his former manager.
Crystal Palace are interested in signing free agent Yaya Toure who left Manchester City at the end of last season, claims 90min via the Sun.

The Eagles are willing to pay the 35-year-old £100,000-a-week in an attempt to lure him to Selhurst Park.

Toure endured a torrid spell in Pep Guardiola’s squad last season and he is willing to take a pay cut in order to prove the Citizens’ boss wrong.

Guardiola sold the Ivory Coast international while at Barcelona, and then had a major fall-out with Toure at the start of the 2016-17 season after leaving him out of City’s Champions League squad. His omission from the group was called humilating by Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk, with Guardiola then excluding the midfielder from the team until he apologised .

Toure later returned to the side, but found himself on the outside again in 2017-18 after falling down the pecking order as City won the Premier League title, playing just 10 league games all season. As a result, he confirmed he would leave the club this summer when his contract expires , having spent eight seasons at the Manchester club.

However, he could remain in Manchester next season after his agent revealed Toure would be ready to play for just £1-a-week at any of the Premier League’s top six clubs, including United.

Toure is wanted by clubs outside of England including Major League Soccer side New York City FC, but Seluk says that he is determined to prove Guardiola wrong and would like to stay in the Premier League and play against his former boss, having recently accused him of racism against African players .
