Insulted Yaya Toure leaving Manchester City?

After winning the title with Manchester City and having a fantastic season in which he proved to be one of the best midfielders in the world, Yaya Toure (31) will likely leave the club.

As it turns out, Toure's birthday was two days after Manchester City won the title, and no one from the club, neither players nor the club officials, remembered to congratulate him.

The birthday card eventually arrived but no one congratulated the best Manchester City player personally. Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk told BBC Sport that he was 'very upset' and could leave City.

Toure later confirmed what Seluk said on his Twitter account, saying 'Everything Dimitri said is true. He speaks for me. I will give an interview after the World Cup to explain'. You may follow Yaya Toure on Twitter here and be the first to hear that explanation:

Toure has three years left on his contract which was renewed in April last year, but if he wants to leave the club there is nothing Manchester City can do about it.

The influential central midfielder joined City in 2010 from Barcelona and won two league titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup and one Supercup with the club. He played 49 matches for City, scoring 24 goals and making 12 assists, being the top league goalscorer for City.

It's safe to say Manchester City wouldn't have been able to win the two Premier League titles without him, especially the last one. And no birthday party?
