Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini has hinted that they could be working on a deal to sign Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.
The Ivorian international is reportedly ready to quit the Etihad in the summer and his former-boss is keen on striking a deal with him in order to have a reunion at the San Siro.
The 31-year-old was close to leaving the Premier League champions at the end of last season after the club infamously forgot to celebrate his birthday, but later on in the transfer window he rubbished those reports and dismissed what his agent had said about his future.
However, after a less than influential season so far, Toure's days at City could be coming to an end, with Inter Milan keen on signing him at the end of the season.
Toure was one of Mancini's star-men during his time in England and he would love to make him part of his new-look Inter team as the Italian looks to bring the glory days back to the club.

Mancini has already lured Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaqiri to the club on loan until the end of the season from Arsenal and Bayern Munich respectively, and he's now hinted that the club could make a move for Toure come the end of the season.
Mancini told Il Giornale: "He's one of the best players in the world, he can still have his say.
"He played for many teams, in many leagues like Belgium, Spain, Russia, England. He only misses Italy, this may be a good chance for him.
"We're working on it.
"You know, there are some players who may change team and Yaya is one of them.

"Next year we may try: we just need three champions to close the gap with Juventus."
In a recent interview, Toure was asked about his own future and he openly stated that he doesn't know where he will be playing football next season.
As well as Inter, Premier League rivals Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all monitoring Toure's situation and could all make a shock move for the Ivorian if he does choose to leave.
