Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini is reportedly lining up a big money move for Manchester City‘s midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure and according to La Gazetta Dello Sport, Inter are willing to pay €60m (£43.5m) for the 31-year-old Ivorian.
Toure is yet to sign a new deal with Man City and it is looking increasingly more likely that he could move on this summer, with Mancini interested in acquiring the services of his former player once again.
Mancini has claimed that Inter will be dipping into the transfer market this summer in order to strengthen the squad.
“Some change will happen next year. We have a chance to take a top player because we are Inter, a top team and we have to fight for the title.”
Yaya Toure’s contract doesn’t expire until 2017, so he won’t come cheaply but Mancini wants a world-class star to help the Nerazzurri take a step towards regaining their European status and bringing success back to the club.
Toure played a pivotal role in helping Mancini bring success to Manchester City and still possesses the same qualities to do so if he were to join Inter.
Having made 22 appearances so far this campaign, Toure has been missed for City who are off the pace in the Premier League title race, but he has still netted seven goals and his current boss Manuel Pellegrini will not want to let the star go.
Will Yaya Toure leave Manchester City this summer?
