Asked if he would like to see City buy his younger brother, he told the Manchester Evening News: "I hope so. He is a good player, and if he could come to our team that would be great. "He has had a few hard times in Barcelona. He doesn't play a lot, and he loves football and loves to play.
"If he can come, especially to a club in England, he would be really happy because the Premier League is a fantastic place to play football."
And he believes his versatile sibling would assist the Blues' quest for a top-four finish.
Toure Sr said: "Technically he is very good and can hold up the ball, and is a great passer with great vision. He also has a great desire to win."
