Yoann Gourcuff is talking his way out of Bordeaux.

A big money target for Manchester City, Gourcuff has slammed the local media over their coverage of Bordeaux this season.

"Last season you were on the back of Olympique Lyonnais,” he told the AFP news agency.

“This year, it’s Bordeaux that suffers.

“I’m not saying you [are responsible for the bad results], but you want to find little things to try to destabilise Bordeaux. Suddenly, all around the training centre, one senses an atmosphere; an atmosphere different from last season, and this is partly related to what you say or write.

“It's tiring because you're always talking about the coach [Laurent Blanc] or [saying] that Marouane [Chamakh] will leave.”
