Yaya Toure will this week attempt to force through a move to Inter Milan this summer by telling Manchester City officials he wishes to leave the club, according to reports.

Toure is believed to be unhappy at the Etihad, and Metro reports that he is keen to link up with former City boss Roberto Mancini at the Serie A giants.
The Ivorian will reportedly signal his intention to leave the club by the end of the week and is believed to be close to agreeing to terms on a £4.3m-a-season deal with Inter.
However, it is understood Toure is after a five-year deal while Inter are only willing to offer a three-year contract.
Inter will need to dig deep into its coffers however, with Metro’s report stating that City would be unlikely to let the 32-year-old depart the club for anything less than £14.3m.
The Italian giants have endured yet another disappointing season, currently sitting eighth on the Serie A table with two games remaining.
