Celtic must make an offer to bring Yaya Toure to the club next season.

The former Manchester City midfielder says he isn’t retired which should boost hopes.

His older brother Kolo was the coach at the Hoops and could perhaps make a move happen.

The Bhoys are in dire need for some top quality signings this summer and Yaya would answer that.

Celtic must move for Yaya Toure

The Hoops will be looking at bringing in a whole host of new faces in a massive summer rebuild.

A lot of the loanees and fringe players will leave the club and proper quality will need to be brought in.


Toure is without a club and it is no secret that Celtic would love to have a player of his stature.

However, amidst news of his possible retirement, Toure denied it and said he will continue to play.

He told Sky Sports during their coverage of Brighton vs Manchester City: “Retired? Never! I will still keep playing.


“When it’s time for me to retire I will do it officially myself. Nobody else will speak on my behalf.”

The Hoops have links to the Toure family and Manchester City, so contact would easily be made.

It is unknown whether the defensive midfielder would be up for heading north to Scotland.

Perhaps to bring in Toure, a few markers must be set before it is even possible.

He will want one last throw of the dice at the Champions League and the Hoops need to qualify.

He’ll also want to get game time as it is pointless with him sitting on the bench.

A possible coaching role with the club could be beneficial to both player and club.

His brother came through the ranks as a player coach and is reaping the awards down at Leicester with Brendan Rodgers.

It is a win-win for Toure, now a move just needs to happen.
