Manchester United v Manchester City: Yaya Toure deal shows City's ambition

07 April 2013 06:30
Just when critics wondered how City would react to United’s inevitable recovery, along came three squiggles of Yaya Touré’s borrowed pen on two pages of a new four-year contract at 11.39am on Thursday at Carrington. Ambition has never left the building. It is there in writing. City’s transformation on and off a pitch that Touré graces with such dynamism is a cash-intensive, time-consuming undertaking by Abu Dhabi. In an impatient world, a disappointing few months for an expensive team precipitates sceptical, occasionally apocalyptical headlines. That is why Touré’s show of commitment to the club until 2017 transmits a welcome message of permanence, of exceptional quality staying associated with City long-term.
