Kolo Toure has admitted his interest in a move to Paris St Germain because of the competition for places at Manchester City.
Toure returned to the City side in September after serving a six-month suspension for failing a drug test, playing the full 90 minutes of the Carling Cup win over Birmingham and the UEFA Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
He has made only one appearance from the bench since then, though, and was an unused substitute in City's 6-1 Premier League win against derby rivals Manchester United.
The 30-year-old Ivorian is now being linked with Qatari-backed PSG, who have made no secret of their desire to lure former England captain David Beckham to Paris.
"I would be interested because of the competition there currently is at City," Toure is quoted as saying by RMC Sport.
"If the name of Paris comes, it will not be like previous years.
"Now if they call me, I would listen to what they say. Given the very good players there are there, it really makes you want to go there, it's clear.
"I know I'm not the only player interested, there are other players who really want to play for PSG.
"It's not just for the money, but also because we see that there are very good investors who want to move the club to produce good football and win trophies."
