Manchester City's midfield enforcer Yaya Toure says that he would relish the chance to return to former club Barcelona at some point in the future.
The 27-year-old Ivory Coast international left Barca in the summer to try his luck in England, having struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Camp Nou.
Toure was quoted as telling Radio Catalunya: “I will be back in Barcelona to play, not as a tourist. I want to return to Barcelona, because to leave was the hardest moment of my life.
“What I want are games, not sitting on the bench. I won everything there and needed other challenges. For me, Manchester City is a very nice challenge.
“This is a team that is not playing in the Champions League and that has not won any titles recently. Therefore, they are perfect for me.”
