Former Manchester City star Yaya Toure has refused to rule out a move to rivals Manchester United when he moves this summer.

The player confirmed that he would leave the club in the off-season and has now officially left the club after not renewing his contract.

That means that he is free to join any club and while West Ham have been linked, so have Manchester United.

When asked about Michael Carrick and whether he could even be a replacement for him, Yaya was coy over a move.

‘Yeah, he just left. Let’s see, let’s see,’ he explained to the Manchester Evening News

‘I don’t rule big teams out. The big teams are very important for me. What they want to achieve, the way they want to go, for me is very important.

I want to go somewhere I can win and achieve. It’s going to be hard one day to play against City, but I have to do that. It is part of my job.’

Yaya has also been talking about rival midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Ivorian is a very big fan of the Frenchman and has explained that the media treat him unfairly.

‘I love Paul Pogba,’ he explained.

‘It’s difficult because of the way the media has treated him. We don’t have the same characteristics because for me I was involved in all the ball, I ran everywhere.

‘I liked that. I was prepared for that. I was working for that for a long time. When I was in the academy in Africa I had to run everywhere, get box to box in 50 seconds. It’s something I’ve been loving to do.

‘Pogba is the same size, power – but different in the way he wants to go. Technically as well, the ability to score goals as well. It is a player I want to play with, to be honest, just to teach him some things.’
