Inter Milan lining up £40m double swoop on City duo – report

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is looking to bring Stevan Jovetic and Yaya Toure to Inter Milan this summer and could look to spend £40 million to secure both players.

Jovetic joined City for £22 million after Mancini left the club in 2013 but has failed to impress over the past two seasons and his time is looking set to draw to a close.

Inter Milan are keen on bringing the former Fiorentina man back to Serie A and will look to secure a loan move with the option to buy for £15 million at the end of that spell, according to the Daily Mail.

The Montenegro international has made 17 Premier League appearances this season, scoring five times with three assists but is behind Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Wilfried Bony in the pecking order.

Star midfielder Yaya Toure, who is valued at £25 million by, could be following Jovetic out of City to join Inter at the end of the season after revealing he is ready for “new challenges”.

The 31-year-old Ivorian has been a mainstay in the City side since Mancini signed him from Barcelona in 2010, but he has not been anywhere near as good as he was last year and could be heading out the exit door.

After scoring 20 league goals on the way to a second title with City last season, Toure has only managed eight this year and his agent, Dimitri Seluk has admitted he has offers to move on.

“We have had different offers for Yaya but we must speak to Manchester City,” Seluk told Sky Sports News.

“People think he will stay because of money but we don’t care about money. If Man City don’t want him – no problem.”

How important are Stevan Jovetic and Yaya Toure to Manchester City? Will both leave the club this summer?
