Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure says it would be an “honour” to play for Paris Saint-Germain, adding to speculation that he could leave the England champions.
Toure, who was the driving force behind City’s Premier League title success this season, complained that it was disrespectful of the club by for not celebrating his 31st birthday.
The Ivorian backed up those claims, revealing he will make a statement regarding his future after the World Cup, and has now hinted at interest in joining the Ligue 1 champions.
In an interview with France Football magazine published on Tuesday, Toure was quoted as saying that “given the goals of Paris, how could you not be interested in a club like that?” adding “it would be an honour to be part of a club like that one day.”
“When I think about the objectives of Paris Saint-Germain, how can you not be interested in a club like that?” he told France Football.
“PSG have become a European power. It’d be an honour to be part of such a club one day… if I can be of use.”
Toure was a key performer for his club this season, scoring 20 league goals and registering nine assists, as City won the Premier League title by two points.
Toure signed a four-year contract last year with City.
