Inter chief wants midfield powerhouse in Italy.
Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has opened the door for a possible raid on former club Manchester City this summer with the intention of signing midfielder Yaya Toure, according to The Sun.
The pair worked with each other during the Italian’s time in charge at the Etihad, and he has kept a close watch on the 31 year old’s situation as his contract winds down to its final 18 months.
“Yaya is one of the strongest players in the world. He still is,” he said.
“He has played in so many teams. He has been in leagues in Belgium, Russia, Spain and England.
“Italy is the one missing. This could be the right opportunity for him to come and try.
“We are building a team. There are players that change the look of a team, and Yaya is one of them.
“Next year we could try. We need to bring three champions, and we will see that we will be ready to fight for the Scudetto.”
Inter have struggled for form in Serie A this term, and find themselves sitting in 10th place in the table – a whopping 23 points adrift of current leaders Juventus.
