The big list of possible #ReasonsYayaWantsToLeaveCity as Twitter speculated as to what was behind Yaya Touré’s birthday outburst.

Manchester City fans have been left reeling after Touré’s agent admitted the player does not feel loved by the club and their lack of effort on his recent birthday “shows they don’t care about him”.

But can the apparently muted celebrations be the real reason the midfielder is so “upset”?

Twitter mused other plausible causes…
