toureIn an interview with Radio Montecarlo, Touré spoke about the meeting with Barcelona and is eager to confront the club he still holds very close to his heart.

“The object was to come to City and win titles here.  If we need to make it to the quarterfinals, semifinals or even the finals and it comes down to beating Barcelona, I’ll score.  I want to go far in this competition.  It’s fantastic, there’s no greater dream and wedo it have a lot to prove.”

Toure went on to discuss the interest in French Ligue 1 champions, PSG, which he would be open to in the future.

“Anything’s possible, why not? In life you never know what can happen.  At the moment, everything’s going well at City, but who knows.  PSG is a big club, important and have great players.”

Toure concluded by discussing the differences between English football and Spanish football, with the African Player of the Year admitting he feels more comfortable in England.

“It’s the league that best suits me, where I feel the most comfortable.  There’s a rhythm and intensity, everything you could want.  I feel good here.  There are players who help me out a lot.  It’s true that in Barcelona they have great players and won a lot of titles, but here I have more responsibilities.”
