Yaya interested in PSG switch


YAYA-TOURELONDON, England, May 27-Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toura has fuelled speculation that he might leave the club by expressing an interest in joining Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Speculation has been rife that the Ivory Coast international could seek a move since his agent revealed that Toure was unhappy at the Etihad.

And now Toure has just added fuel to the fire, admitting it would be an honour to represent Les Parisiens.

“Given the goals of Paris, how could you not be interested in a club like that?” he told France Football.

“PSG have become one of the strongest teams in Europe. It would be an honour to one day play for a club like that. If I can be of service…”

Toure reiterated that he would clarify his situation after the World Cup, but hinted that his agent Dimitry Seluk was working on a possible deal.

“Given the magnificent season Manchester City have had, everyone talks about me and everything is open,” he added.

“My agent, Dimitry, is hanging on the telephone and he knows what he has to do, I have complete confidence in him.

“Nobody knows what can happen tomorrow, my attention is on the World Cup and we will see afterwards.

“Yes, I have said I would like to finish my career at Barcelona. You never know because football moves quickly, you never know.”
