Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure aims to help his side become the world's top club team - and the Premier League title is just the first step.

The Ivorian has been in fine form for City, bagging a brace against Newcastle to put his side on the verge of a first top flight title since 1968. The 28-year-old was a £24m purchase from Barcelona, a team Manchester City will look to emulate if they are to become the world's best.

But Toure is sure his current club have what it takes to usurp Barca and the midfielder is pleased he chose Manchester in 2010.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Toure said: "That's why I came here, to help the team…to help the club go forward and make it bigger than any club in the world."

City can take a step in the right direction on Sunday when they face QPR at the Etihad Stadium. Victory for Toure's side will hand them the Premier League trophy and the Ivorian international hopes it's the first of many.

"I wanted to come to the club to make a story and my decision was to come to City," said Toure.

"Of course, some people make some speculation about other things, but, for me, when you are a football player, you always want to go where you can be loved and be the best player."

Toure is certainly one of City's top players and has become increasingly important in a team packed with top talent.

The former-Barca star will be key to City's title challenge next year and to an improved performance in the Champions League, where Toure's side will be able to truly test their ability against the world's top teams.
