Toure: I would love Camp Nou return

El Mundo Deportivo reports that Manchester City’s Yaya Toure has said he would love a return to the Camp Nou.

In a remarkable interview with RAC1 radio Toure spoke of a hypothetical return to Barcelona, the club where he spent three years before joining Roberto Mancini’s men in July, 2010 for €28m.

“Two years ago I said I would return,” explained the Ivory Coast international. “For me Barca was the most important team and if they called then I wouldn’t have to think twice. I love Barcelona and I would like to return.”

Toure is on the verge of winning the Premier League with City, where victory over Queens Park Rangers at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday would hand the Blues a first title success in 44 years. However, the midfielder, who scored both goals in the 2-0 win at Newcastle United last weekend, remembers his declarations when he departed the Catalan capital.

“At the Press conference when I left I said that I would return. In life you never know what will happen tomorrow and Barca is the team of my life. I said I wanted to end my career here and if I could do that then it would be phenomenal.”

The 28-year-old also commented on Pep Guardiola’s decision to quit the Barcelona bench and reckons his successor Tito Vilanova will be a success.

“It was a strange decision because Guardiola has been instrumental in Barca’s success over the last few years. But we are all human and despite doing some great things he has decided to leave.

“I know Tito well and I think he will apply the same philosophy as Pep. Tito is a very good person with similar beliefs. He is also a very good Coach,” he added.
