Man, some agents just don’t know when to talk.

Yaya Toure and his club, Manchester City, are in a fight for a Top Four spot in the Premier League and two days away from a massive UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first leg against PSG.

Yaya Toure’s agent, Dimitri Seluk, is talking about his player’s future away from the Etihad Stadium.

Seluk says there’s no chance Yaya will stick around, and that they are already looking into his next location.

From the BBC:

“He’ll definitely leave Manchester City, I can calmly confirm that,” Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk told FC Inter News.

“Various offers have arrived for Yaya and we’re evaluating them, but no decision has been taken yet for next season.”

Good timing, Dimitri!

When motivated and interested, Yaya Toure is still perhaps the most complete midfielder in the world. When he isn’t, well, he most certainly is not.

And whether it’s dissatisfaction with birthday presents or other players winning awards, I’m not sure this is a guy worth the hassle.

Attention MLS teams: I know Yaya says he’d prefer MLS to China, and he would simply run over most MLS midfields when interested… oh what am I saying! Enjoy Seattle!
