Kevin De Bruyne has suggested Yaya Toure fell from favour with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City because he was not fit enough.

And Dimitri Seluk, the midfielder's agent, has also hit out at Guardiola, revealing plans for 2018-19 that include making out-of-contract Toure available on a free for City's rivals, earning just £1 per week.

"'Yaya has received many offers from different countries, big money offers, but we have chose to devote the next season to Guardiola", Seluk told sport24 .

Central midfield is still an area where they need to add some muscle, however, and with this in mind, they should consider a move for Manchester City ace Yaya Toure. In his final season, though, the Ivorian only played 17 times for the Citizens.

The 35-year-old is now a free agent having been released by City and he gave an explosive interview of his own where he took aim at Guardiola.

Real Madrid, winners for the last three seasons, top the coefficient rankings followed by Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus, Porto, Arsenal and Benfica.

In contrast, he had said the average age of Qatar Airways cabin crews was 26 in comments criticised as both sexist and ageist. His comments were reportedly met with load groans of disapproval.

Champions League group stage participants next year will receive a starting fee - which is the same for all teams - plus bonuses for winning matches, additional payments calculated on previous results (known as the coefficient ranking) and finally a share of the television market pool.

"But when you buy up all the best players in the world, this is much easier than, say, it was for Ranieri, whose Leicester side won the Premier League".

Toure left City last month after eight seasons at the Etihad, the last two of which were spent under Guardiola.

Toure and Guardiola have endured a tempestuous relationship.

Seluk's comments came after Toure accused Guardiola of being "cruel to him" and claimed he "often had problems with Africans." In Barca, some have also asked the question. He is a wonderful passer of the football and that combined with his expert vision would make him a real asset to Arsenal in the final third. "And I'm sure that many African shamans in the future will not allow Guardiola to win the Champions League".
