Roberto Mancini admits Yaya Toure interest

Published Add your comment

Roberto Mancini has hinted at an audacious swoop for his former centre midfield genius Yaya Toure.

The Inter Milan is incredibly keen on Toure after working with the big centre midfielder at Manchester City where they both won the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012.

Mancini has highlighted the fact Toure has conquered many leagues yet Italy is not one of them. He is confident he could lure him from Manchester to Milan having lured him away from Spanish giants Barcelona. 

Mancini told Sky Sports: "I bought Yaya five years ago. It was really difficult to take him there. He is a fantastic player and in the future, if he wants to change, and to try and play in Italy, Inter is open for him."

"It depends because he is a City player in this moment."

"He has played in so many teams. He has been in leagues in Belgium... Spain and England. Italy is the one missing. This could be the right opportunity for him to come and try.


Come the end of the season Toure will be 32. His-box-to box style requires a certain amount of energy that he may not possess anymore.

Mancini continued: "We are building a team. There are players that change the look of a team, and Yaya is one of them."

"Next year we could try. We need to bring three champions, and we will see that we will be ready to fight for the Scudetto."


Manchester City would be incredibly reluctant to let the two-time league winner go as he is integral to the way that they play. That has been extremely evident as they have not played to the same high standard since Toure left for the African Cup of Nations.
