Kolo Toure Looks Destined to Leave Manchester City This Summer: The Nightly EPL

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure looks destined to leave the club this summer after failing to hear anything about a contract renewal for the past two months.

Here’s what Kolo Toure said regarding the matter:

“I have been here for nearly four years, and two fantastic years when I have been playing a lot and I hear my songs with Yaya and I will miss those things. For me my family is here, my kids are at school and they like the area – but in two months nothing has come from the club and I am thinking about my future definitely.

“My first choice is this country, as I like English football – that is why I began playing football.

“After Cote d’Ivoire I came here, I don’t know any other culture and it is important for me to stay here, I have been here for 10 years.”

While Toure has stepped in on numerous occasions this season to bail Manchester City out of tough situations, it may be time for the defender to move on in order for City to get fresher, young legs in to help solidify City’s defense as they prepare to win back the Premier League title next season.
