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