A report suggests that Yaya Toure is determined to leave Premier League champions Manchester City this summer.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is reportedly determined to leave the club this summer in order to pursue a potential move to Liverpool or Chelsea.

The 31-year-old has been repeatedly linked with a transfer away from the Premier League champions after complaining that nobody had wished him a happy birthday.

Toure was also hit by the death of brother Ibrahim last month, which led to the Ivory Coast international suggesting that City did not offer him the required support.

French publication Le Parisien quotes an unnamed international teammate of Toure's as saying: "He has accumulated too many grudges against [Manchester City's] leaders and he will not stay with them. He will do everything to ensure his departure this summer."

Meanwhile, a report in The Independent claims that Liverpool and Chelsea are among the parties interested in capturing Toure's signature.
