Despite the regulations and the £50 million fine from UEFA, PSG are set to go on a spending spree in the summer. They are already close to securing David Luiz from Chelsea in a £ 50 million deal. Now, they are reportedly looking at players like Eden Hazard and Yaya Touré.
The future of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Touré has taken an incredible twist since the end of the season. A key ingredient in City’s title winning season, Touré used the excuse of poor celebrations for his birthday as a reason to talk about leaving the club. His agent, Dimitry Seluk, recently spoke about the need for Touré being part of City after his playing career came to an end.
Whilst stressing the same, Touré also spoke about the interest from Paris St Germain. Rather than dismissing the interest, the Ivory Coast international stated that he would love to play for a club like PSG, who he says have joined the ranks as one of the top clubs in Europe. He said:
“Considering the objectives in Paris, how could you not be attracted by such a club?
“PSG has become one (of the) strongholds in Europe. It would be an honour to be part of such a club one day. If I could help…”
PSG will be in a position to buy players like today for massive transfer fees only if they managed to sell a couple of their star names. It looks like the case after their midfielder Marco Verratti has been linked with Champions League winners Real Madrid in the last few days.
In 50 appearances last season, Touré scored 24 goals and created a further 11 as City lifted their second league title in three seasons. The 31-year-old has also been speaking about to return to Barcelona as well.
