Inter Milan are the latest club to be linked with a move for unhappy Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.
Gazzetta World reports that the Serie A giants, who are under new Chinese ownership, could finally get their man after pursuing the Ivorian maverick for quite some time.
Toure has never settled in Manchester, famously complaining when the club didn’t celebrate his birthday and more recently coming under fire for some sloth-like performances in the Champions League.
It’s clear his heart lies away from the Etihad, so City are perfectly happy to let him go.
New boss Pep Guardiola has already signed another player in his position in German international Ilkay Gundogan, so it’s clear as much as City aren’t in Toure’s plans, he isn’t really in theirs either.
There is one element of City he won’t be able to leave behind.
Inter are managed by ex-Sky Blues boss Roberto Mancini, who could be vital in convincing Toure to take a pay cut.
Even with their new owners, Inter are unlikely to pay him what he earned last season, which was in the region of €11million.
The Nerazzurri should be able to get back Toure back to the sort of form he enjoyed at Barcelona, though, and that will be absolutely priceless.
