PSG are ready to intensify their pursuit of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

The Mirror says the midfield powerhouse claims Premier League champions City did not excuse him from their end-of-season trip to Abu Dhabi so he could spend time with his dying brother.

The 31-year-old signed a new four-year contract 12 months ago and PSG are keeping tabs on his situation.

Yaya recently said it would be an "honour" to play for Paris Saint-Germain.
