The London Evening Standard claims that the midfielder is open to a move from the Etihad and that discussions were held during the African Cup of Nations about his future.

Inter Milan have emerged as a potential destination for the midfielder but with their qualification for the Champions League unlikely this season it would be difficult for the Serie A side to match his currently high wage packet.

Toure only signed a four year deal in April 2013 which saw his salary rise to around £200,000 per week meaning the Italians would likely be unable to both sign him and comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

Speaking recently on the player, ex-Man City boss Roberto Mancini hinted he would like to sign the player with current club Inter.

“Serie A needs players like Yaya so that it can go back to being one of the best leagues, if not the best, like it was 15, 20 years ago.

“I know it won’t be easy to convince him. His signing would be important for us and for the entire league.”

This isn’t the first time Toure has been linked away from City with the bizarre situation last summer when he claimed he was undervalued at the club because they had not wished him ‘Happy Birthday’.
