Man United leading race to sign £220,000-a-week Man City star

Everton, Manchester United and Burnley are all listed as possible destinations for the veteran Ivorian.

Manchester United are among the early favourites to sign departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, along with Everton and Burnley, according to Sky Bet.

Toure is leaving City after eight years at the end of his contract this summer and the Manchester Evening News reports that he is keen to remain in the north west.

Nearby Everton has been strongly discussed as a potential destination over the weekend, and it is perhaps unsurprisingly the Toffees who lead the betting at 3/1.

But at 5/1, a shock move across Manchester may not be out of the question for Toure – seven years after Owen Hargreaves (United to City) became the last player to move directly between the two clubs.

And with Europa League football secured for next season, a switch to Burnley at 6/1 should not be ruled out.

Here’s the full list of potential Toure destinations, courtesy of Sky Bet:

Everton – 3/1

Any MLS Team – 4/1

Manchester United – 5/1

Burnley – 6/1

Fenerbahce – 12/1

Huddersfield Town – 16/1

Newcastle United – 25/1

Arsenal – 28/1

Leicester City – 28/1

To stay at City – 4/1
