Yaya Toure wants to stay at Manchester City despite big-money interest from China, saying he would be angry if he moved there.
Some reports have claimed Toure could earn up to £500,000 per week by moving but the 33-year-old insists he is not motivated by money.
He said: “I always say that if I went to China I would end up feeling angry there. Do you play football because you love football, or do you play because you want to make money? What’s the purpose?
“Me, I just want to play football because I enjoy it, I love playing. I enjoy helping my team-mates, I enjoy playing against the big players and teams. I want to carry on in that way.”
“Some people have the mentality that they want to do that, to try something different but, for me, my feeling is that I want to play more football.”
Toure has been instrumental in City’s successes since joining the club from Barcelona in 2010.
