Inter boss Roberto Mancini has admitted that he would like to bring Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure to Milan and reunite with the Ivorian, the Manchester
Mancini was the man who brought Toure to City, luring him from Barcelona in the summer of 2010. There, he scored the winning goal in the 2011 FA Cup final and went on to play a key role in winning the Premier League title a year later. Since Mancini left in 2013, he has added another title and the Capital One Cup to his list of honours.
The Italian side made some tentative enquiries in January over Toure’s availability, but they feel they may have a chance in the summer, with the 31-year-old’s future at Man City having been the subject of some speculation in recent months, particularly in the summer when his agent accused the club’s owners of showing him a lack of respect.
And while Mancini admits that Toure is still under contract at Man City, he is hopeful of tempting him to join Inter. “For me, he’s one of the best in the world,’ he said. ‘He plays for City, so a lot depends on him and whether he wants to have an experience in Italy after playing in the other major European tournaments. It would be good for Italian football if he came.’
