Yaya Toure's agent claims that he is prepared to allow the midfielder to play for the Premier League's top six clubs for £1 per week.

Yaya Toure's agent has claimed that he is prepared to allow the midfielder to play for the Premier League's top six clubs for £1 per week.

Dmitri Selyuk made the comments after Toure claimed that Pep Guardiola, who managed the midfielder while at Manchester City and Barcelona, has problems with African players.

Selyuk, speaking to Russian outlet Sport 24, added that Toure can show that he is "not finished with football".

"Yaya has many offers from different countries, where they are ready to pay a lot of money, but we decided to dedicate the next season to Guardiola," the agent said. "And to prove and show the fans of Manchester City that Yaya has not finished with football.

"He is full of energy and wants to play this season in England. At a time when huge sums are being spent in England for the purchase of football players, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move as a free agent to any English club of the top six with a salary of one-pound-a-week. But for certain successes to make a bonus system.

"I believe that a player like Yaya would not reject Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool. Yaya is a winner. And never before has a top footballer with leadership qualities rejected any club, especially when they don't have to pay for it."

Toure joined City from Barcelona in 2010, and spent eight years in Manchester before leaving the club at the end of last season.
