The report states that the Ivory Coast international is mulling a move to MCFC's sibling club New York City FC in the January transfer window, having seen his playing time dwindle dramatically in Manchester thus far this season. With Andrea Pirlo set to retire at the close of the current MLS campaign, both a Designated Player slot and a spot in central midfield will open up at NYCFC next year.
