Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has turned down a £30million offer from two Chinese clubs to join them this summer.
Shanghai SIPG and Jiangsu Suning are believed to be the two clubs to have made offers.
Their offer would take Toure’s earnings to a staggering £577,000-a-week, only behind Cristinao Ronaldo and Messi in the terms of football’s top earners, according to The Guardian.
Toure would rather remain in the Premier League, but it is unlikely he will remain at City, with Pep Guardiola poised to take over.
The Spaniard let Toure go in 2010 when he was in charge of Barcelona.
But the Ivorian is settled with his family in Cheshire and keen not to uproot them.
