Transfer news: Kolo Toure wants to play with Robin van Persie again

Manchester City star Kolo Toure has revealed that he would like to link up with Arsenal talisman Kolo Toure at the Etihad Stadium

The Dutch striker revealed on Wednesday that he would not be signing a new deal, prompting the interest from the Citizens and other clubs, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.

And Toure has spoken out about his relationship with the man that the Gunners relied on for goals for large parts of the season.

“Robin is a top player. I’ve played with him, I know him and he’s a great man,” Toure told the Manchester Evening News.

“At City we have great players and the club does what it wants in transfers.

“But, for me, if Robin comes it’s great because I know what he can do.

“You have to build your squad every year to do better.

“To win the Champions League is very difficult as we have seen.”

Van Persie scored over 30 goals for the Gunners last season and won the PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards.
