Toure dismisses Manchester City rumours

Asked about the rumours earlier this year linking him with a move to Manchester City (read more here), Barcelona defensive midfielder and Ivorian international Yaya Touré (26) has said in an interview with English newspaper The Times that a move to England is not an option at this moment:

"I heard some things like that being said about City's interest in me. All I would say about it is that I have always said I like English football. You never know what might happen in a few years' time but for now I'm part of a great team.

As far as my brother joining City, for a while it was a difficult decision for him. After Adebayor made his choice to go to City, that maybe helped make up my brother's mind. They are both Africans, and knowing that he would have Manu there was encouraging. I think City are building a team that should be capable of winning the league. But then you look at Chelsea and Man United and you know that my brother's got a lot of work."
