Manchester United wants to sign Toure

British tabloid The Daily Telegraph claims that Barcelona defensive midfielder and Ivorian international Yaya Touré (26) is one of the five names on Manchester United's transfer target list. Touré would be valued at 17,5 million euro°.

British tabloid The Daily Mail also claims that Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson would like to sign Touré, while British tabloid The Sun claims that Arsenal is preparing a 17,5 million euro bid for the Ivorian midfielder. Inter Milan and AC Milan would also be interested.

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona is still confident about being able to renew the contract of Touré. The club would now first like to talk personally with the player to know his opinion about the renewal offer. A meeting could be scheduled next week when Touré will be back in Barcelona.

MohamedH said...

i think the worst thing we can do is sel YaYa Toure... He is the best in his position... liked him last year, loved him this year...

TengkuAmir10 said...

30 mil!no penny less.if we could sign alves for 30 mil then why cant united cough up 30 mil for someone better???????

p.s. i dont wanna sell if i was pep

"The club would now first like to talk personally with the player to know his opinion about the renewal offer"
understandable when the agent is being a pain in the ass :)

TengkuAmir10 said...

@mast.i agree wif u.seluk is one hell of a money chaser!!

acsmith843 said...

with the signing of kaka and ronaldo........we have to keep toure........should be #1 priority in my opinion

Lebaaa said...

valued at 17,5m euros? Why? The best def midfielder in the world is so cheap? is it because he plays for barcelona and barcelona always sell their players cheap? How much is Mascerano or Essien valued at? Twice of Toure?

Hung said...

Another "makelele" case if Barca sell Toure?

FC BARCA said...

This transfer window has been very disappointing. I just hope these reports are false because keeping Toure should be a top priority.

Kxevin said...

Everyone should calm down. Txiki and Guardiola understand the value of Yaya. He isn't going anywhere. Busquets and Keita aren't THAT good.

Remember, transfer season is filled with press nonsense. We want to talk to the player, in the acknowledgement that his agent is a jackass.

TengkuAmir10 said...

yea.i agree wif lebaaa.as i have said be4 over n over again about,BARCA SELLING CHEAP,masch would cost us 30mil€ n essien would also cost the same wif masch but why yaya at 17.5???its nonsense n i'm starting to think dat barca would take 18mil€ for yaya if it was bidden by some club.barca is really x99 not smart in selling compared to other teams.look at bayern<>they make us crazy about ribery..look at ibra<>they r clearly going for a smart move rather than buying our players for other clubs r just like an auction spree/garage sale for other big clubs.barca players are never rated the most EXPENSIVE.bcos of txiki or laporta.

bojan! said...

with the tempo of this transfer market i would say E40m

ps I will not sell him even 4 100 m!
the best DMC we could have

jazzy said...

James said...

Just because Manchester United wants to buy Toure doesn't mean we want to sell. Just because the Guardian set his price at 17.5 million doesn't mean that's the price.

@Amir you're in every post bashing Txiki and Laporta without any logic. Why are you so upset? Just because other teams set crazy prices for their players, doesn't mean they'll get the crazy prices. If Barcelona papers started printing that we could get Ibrahimovic for 20 million and Ribery for 15 million would that make you happier?

hadi said...

If barca lose toure then they will lose their winning days....BARCA SHOULD RENEW HIS CONTRACT

TengkuAmir10 said...

@jazzy.i found those news earlier.it was hillarious.to say paris has a sextape which i own.hehe.paris body sux.

@james.i wouldnt just be happier ,i would even held a perty at my house,a BIG one which i invite all barca fans in my country.

TengkuAmir10 said...

@james.i know what u mean but im just angry dat barca players always going in the market for a cheaper price which i dont like n im sure a lot of u guys wont too.so do u understand me.personnally,putting laporta's n txiki's name is just to spice d comment up so somebody will come n debate with me which i like.its nothing personal

@Amir

In that case, I have an insider source who told me about some fantastic transfer news.

We're on the verge of selling Hleb to Bayern for 27 million euros.

Ibrahimovic demanded a transfer forcing Moratti to sell. He is in Barcelona taking a physical as we speak.

We've also been offered David Silva for 12 million by Valencia. Their club's financial woes have forced them to sell to Barcelona.

In other news Yaya, Eto'o and Valdes have all renewed.

Go have your party.

Anonymous said...

I think he meant that he would hold a party if we got zlatan for a very low price. but how do we know if someone in his country claim that they are barca fans but in reality they are real madrid fans who cheat their way into Amir's party?

TengkuAmir10 said...

YEEEHA!!!if dis was true anony id call my barca friends to come tomorrow n theres a lot of them 4 sure!!

TengkuAmir10 said...

@anony above.i can smell the scent of a madrid fan from a mile away.trust me.i think u guys can too.HAHAAHHAHA

puyi said...

I think the reason The Sun put such a low figure on Yaya is a reflection of Barcelona's tendency to sell cheap. Does The Sun put the value of Villa at 20m euros? No they dont.

Anonymous said...

that was a funny one, TengkuAmir! :D

LD said...

17.5 millions for the future-best-dm of the world...hahaha

TengkuAmir10 said...

u guys should read my comment on hleb at hleb's post..it was funnier.

Hung said...

barca's stars are priceless :-)
imagine how much xavi, iniesta or messi would go for if they were on sale :-)

TengkuAmir10 said...

agree wif u Hung.

NouBarca said...

Barca is for sale £50Mil- british tabloid

TengkuAmir10 said...

r u crazy noubarca???where's the link to prove it?

Anonymous said...

perez offering 140 M Euro for messi !!!

TengkuAmir10 said...

of course not idiot!!!messi is worth more n selling most best prospect to madriddistas is absolutely crazy.u r an idiot.n anony who said silva is coming,who is ur socalled"insider source"??

TengkuAmir10 said...

info just before i start my PAR TEA!!

Anonymous said...

Amir did you forgot to take your pills?

TengkuAmir10 said...

i guess so..

Marws said...

No way Yaya is leaving us. He is the best def mid in the world. Who would we replace him with?! Busquets? Keita? Nono. I understand why Yayas agent is angry, but seriously there is no way Pep and Laporta is going to let him go.

NouBarca said...

TengkuAmir, I am very sure you just joined us.- which is great. The more the merrier. But you need to take things easy and as fun. these press would wind you up and if you react to everything you read on here, you would lose your head. So just have fun and tag along. ok mate? Its a place to meet fellow Cule and just have fun.

TengkuAmir10 said...

actually bro noubarca,i didnt mean to hurt ur feelings dude but i have joined this blog a year ago.if only i had proof.well i use to use the name messifan and never bothering to comment just read n read n read n read.10 times a day n everyday!!man!!this blog is addictive n i swear to GOD that i have joined this blog(not signed up) for a long time ago.seriously.i even saw ur name commenting long time ago but never bothered what u guys said.just keep it to myself but now i feel like i wanna open up.i know that ur post earlier is just a joke n i knew u would confront me after.RYTE??its just that idk how to prove to u guys dat i have joined longlonglonglong time ago...SERIOUS.from ramzi tanani's articles in december about facing the four top teams to barca4life's video's.

FCBarca said...

This 17.5 million valuation is nonsensical...Anything less than 30-35 would be absurd.

Still, this has got to be a joke...I would rate only a precious few ahead of Yaya in terms of value/importance to the club...He MUST be resigned

NouBarca said...

Kool. Thats even better that you ve finally decided to be a "part of us" after watching us post for over a year. I rarely take things personal here. Tho when I 1st joined I argued alot with a "memo".. but he seldom post now. But its all fun for me. The more the merrier. keep posting...

where do u live?

TengkuAmir10 said...

p.s. i got a lot of people saying d same thing about me.bcos i just signed up.but i dunno how to prove dat ive been following this blog since it first started to today.barca fan 4 life also.i can remember one post where pep(blogger) put in pep guardiola's pic shaking laporta's hands.i remember that until today n i remember someone commented "just came or something like dat n i already like this guy".hope that post will come again n u guys cn check those comment n see if it was the same at what im saying ryte now.ciao

LeónDragón said...

Athul said...

@TengkuAmir10

Hey pal,you seem to have a tough time understanding that other members were taking a dig at you.

The anonymous post regarding transfers was obviously some fellow Cule having a little fun,seeing your reply to one of James's comments.

TengkuAmir10 said...

i knew it already athul but i just wanted to have some fun.

TengkuAmir10 said...

if those rumours were true.PEP mustve know about it n posted it in d blog.so clearly,i didnt believe dat stupid socalled anony from above cos im not dat stupid to not click on google and see the news as we speak.bcos if its not on google then its just BULL.but i just wanted to play alittle game.

Anonymous said...

So Amir is your house big enough to hold a party for ALL the Barcelona fans that live in the United States?

Anonymous said...

WOOW , 50 comments , i never knew yaya was this popular ( even though he deserves it )

sashi said...

everything is fun as long as the guy posting it posts it just for fun n the guy taking it takes it for fun. TengkuAmir n Nou n all other Cules, we are getting a little tensed as Madrid are getting so many players... we have the best in the world... why worry??? we can beat Madrid wit kaka n with Ronaldo... waiting for teh day Ronaldo catches Kaka by his neck :)

Caribbean Hotspot said...

i hope barca don't be like madrid when they let marckelle go

sashi said...

Peppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp ....
can u hear me? pls post another news... beeen refreshing for soooo long for sometime now :(

sashi said...

i meant Pep the blog admin... the genius behind this blog.

Caribbean Hotspot said...

come on barca make a move lets see what u working with this summer....eto, toure, ribery,

Ondra said...

Any news by insidesource?

Mike said...

yes, what is going on with insidesource? It is depressing to read all the players rumoured to leave us, yaya,eto'o etc while Madrid buy villa, kaka and co. I don't think we ask for much. we are the treble championss, just not malouda for 20m please.

jazzy said...

quote from pique:
"if there is not calm in the team and the fans after a year when we won the treble, then something is wrong".
and nou.. lol.
perez will buy barca cuz it is a Very good business.
or maybe he can just buy newcastle and build a football empire in the EPL..
peace out.

TengkuAmir10 said...

it will fit if i can cut about 20million people to pieces.u guys can come too.let barca sponsor u guys wif airforce concorde flights n im sure obama will come too.u know how much he wnts my autograph.n i'll even give iniesta an invitation card.who knows maybe the whole squad will come.n maybe we can catch n record a sextape of ronaldo n hilton heiress paris having it n selling it will make us money 4 5million dollars just like kim kardashian did it.n wif d money we can buy maybe ronaldo n kaka from madrid.kak maybe cost 2million n ronaldo may cost 5million$ so ,DONE DEAL!!

@sashi.pep is asleep by now.

Tengu,

You're a knob.

LeónDragón said...

yeah tengku...memo, has been a long time heard from him here, but maybe he changed his name too

LeónDragón said...

or maybe he started a career as rockstar and is now to high to write comments, or he just changed his name, is sitting with pac & biggie in jamaica to held them back of killing each other again and again. just joking, peace out

Iason said...

You get Yaya Toure and we get Wayne Rooney!

Exarch said...

Yaya has to stay!!!! If we cannot renew him and he is not happy then AC ilan and Man u should be made to pay $55million+ because they have so money from the transfers.

The mkt is like that to chelsea and man city, when a club has money the selling club always asked for crazy figures.

For 17.5 we should give them a cardboard cut out and a option to 1st buy!!!!

honestly if we sold him for 40 or 50 who can we buy!!!! And our next target will then charge us an arm and a leg because they know we have more money to spend!!

TengkuAmir10 said...

@exarch.the selling club will always ask for crazy figures when we're buying bcos we're a big club n we just won alot of money from the treble.so,in anyhow,we will still get charged for an overrated price.
