Yaya Touré is 90% likely to leave Manchester City this summer, according to his agent, Dimitri Seluk.
Seluk told Sky Sports News HQ that three clubs were keen to sign the midfielder but that his client would not make a decision on his future before the end of the season. The agent said talks were planned with City for next week.
Internazionale are among the clubs keen to buy Touré. Their head coach, Roberto Mancini, has talked openly of his interest in the 31-year-old, whom he managed at City.
Touré, who has two years remaining on his contract, told Foot Mercato last month that he was open to “new challenges” and described Paris Saint-Germain as “a great club”.
He said in the interview: “Since I started playing football, I had a dream as a little boy. Today, I am living the dream of thousands of little boys. I represent my continent, Africa, and that has no price. No amount of wages will make me stay at a club if I feel that I no longer belong there or if no challenge exists for me.
“It would be unjust on my part. There comes a moment where numbers don’t stop us, it goes beyond that, even if the English press seem more interested in the numbers than the sport itself. For the future, I don’t know more than you do because I will always go where I am offered new challenges. That is in my nature.”
