City stalwart hints at Beckham link-up

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure is hoping to quit the Etihad Stadium and move to Paris St Germain, the preferred destination of David Beckham.

Since his return to action following a six-month drugs ban, Toure has made just one full appearance for City, against Birmingham City in the Carling Cup.

The form of Joleon Lescott and Vincent Kompany has made Toure's opportunities limited at City, and the defender has hinted where his future may lie.

"I would be interested because of the competition there currently is at City," Toure said on a move.

"If the name of Paris comes it will not be like previous years.


"Now if they call me, I would listen to what they say. Given the very good players there are there, it really makes you want to go there, it's clear.

"I know I'm not the only player interested, there are other players who really want to play for PSG.

"It's not just for the money, but also because we see that there are very good investors who want to move the club to produce good football and win trophies."

Other than Toure, former England captain Beckham has been heavily linked with a move to PSG, and the Ligue 1 side have made no secret of their desire to see the deal completed.

Toure was an unused substitute for City in their 6-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, but could be involved in the Carling Cup against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.
