Arsenal, Man Utd, Inter Milan target Yaya Toure hints at sensational Man City exit

Yaya Toure has revealed that he is not motivated by money and could leave Manchester City if he feels he 'no longer belongs there'.

The Ivory Coast midfielder's future at the Etihad Stadium has been questioned in recent weeks with the speculation coming hand-in-hand with the demise of the reigning Premier League champions.

Now, the former Barcelona man has indicated that perhaps the time could soon be right to move on from his £200,000-a-week contract with the club he has called home since 2010.

"No amount of wages will make me stay at a club if I feel that I no longer belong there or if no challenge exists for me," said Toure, 31.

"It would be unjust on my part. There comes a moment where numbers don't stop unjust on my part. There comes a moment where numbers don't stop us, it goes beyond that.

"For the future, I don't know more than you do, because I will always go where I am offered new challenges. That is in my nature.

"When things are not going well at a club, the key players take the fall."

Toure has been linked with Inter Milan, where former City boss Roberto Mancini sits at the helm, while City's domestic rivals Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been credited with an interest.
