Man City midfielder Toure admits it would be an honour to play for PSG
Man City midfielder Yaya Toure has added fuel to the fire surrounding his reported unhappiness at the newly crowned Premier League champions by admitting it would be “an honour” to play for Paris Saint-Germain, according to ITV News.
Reports emerged recently that the player was unhappy at the club and felt disrespected by the club’s hierarchy, and while Toure laughed off reports that this was the reason behind his unhappiness he has not committed himself fully to seeing through his forseeable future in the north west.
His agent, Dimitry Seluk, went as far as saying that the prospect of Toure remaining at City was about “50-50,” but speaking to France Football the Ivory Coast international was keen to praise the big-spending French champions.
PSG look set to complete what would be a world record transfer for a defender by bringing in David Luiz from Chelsea, and have also been linked with the Brazilian's current team-mate Eden Hazard. Toure, however, was keen to ensure the club were aware that he would be open to moving there himself.
“Given the goals of Paris, how could you not be interested in a club like that? PSG have become one of the strongest teams in Europe. It would be a honour to one day play for a club like that. If I can be of service...”
He also continued by implying that his presence at the club could continue, saying: “Given the magnificent season Manchester City have had, everyone talks about me and everything is open. 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.”
Relating to that closing comment, Toure spent three years at Barcelona between 2007-2010 before moving to Man City. He scored four goals in 74 appearances for the Catalans before making the switch, but has stated before that he hopes to finish his career there.
