Inter Milan target Yaya Toure and James Milner as club chief monitors Manchester City duo against Barcelona
By Manchester correspondent Alex Stevens
Inter Milan are weighing up summer moves for Manchester City duo Yaya Toure and James Milner.
The Serie A club’s sporting director Piero Ausilio was at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night to watch the City pair in action as their team crashed out of the Champions League against Barcelona.
Inter manager Roberto Mancini has made no attempt to hide his desire to be reunited with Toure, who was an integral player when the former City boss led the club to their inaugural Premier League title in 2012.
The Ivory Coast international, who turns 32 in May, has two years remaining on the four-year contract that he signed in 2013 but his form has noticeably dipped in recent months and he was substituted against Barcelona on Wednesday even though City needed two goals to take the second leg to extra time.
Mancini is also an admirer of Milner, 29, who is out of contract in the summer and has attracted interest from a string of clubs in the Premier League and overseas.
