With the offseason in full swing, Jose Mourinho continues to eye up potential targets and no position is safe from scrutiny.
Since Michael Carrick retired, he left a gap in the Manchester United midfield. However, Mourinho secured the signing of the Brazilian, Fred. In addition to the departure of Carrick, rumors persist that Marouane Fellaini is on his way out of Old Trafford. Going into the next season, the midfield needs a makeover.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Yaya Toure could look to move away from Manchester City. Additionally, the Ivory Coast player stated, “I don’t rule big teams out,” when addressing the transfer rumors. Thankfully for Manchester United, a move to a rival team would not scare away a valuable midfielder.
Obviously, Toure desires a team where he can go and compete immediately. While playing for Manchester City, the Ivorian grew accustomed to winning ways. Therefore, it makes sense that he wants to continue to win with a big club.
Given his turbulent relationship with his current manger, the veteran has a point to prove. Toure sunk into the second team under Pep Guardiola, but he would be a first team player under Jose Mourinho. More importantly, Toure would come at little cost to United. Furthermore, the midfielder would be a free transfer, given his contract is up with City.
