Toure: Could have options
Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure is refusing to speak of his future, but admits the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United do appeal to him.
Toure penned a new contract in the summer, but has surprisingly been anything but a first-choice this term.
He has started just four league games, which had led to speculation about his future.
Almost every big club in Europe has been linked with Toure in recent months, as it became apparent he was seeing the substitutes' bench on a regular basis.
Whilst Manchester City - who signed his brother Kolo in the summer - have been strongly linked, his agent earlier this week suggested they would not be of interest to him.
However, Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho are all said to be considering mounting a bid for the 26-year-old.
"I am a Barcelona player," Toure told skysports.com.
"Arsenal, Inter Milan, Man Utd are all great teams with great managers."
