Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure is seeking ‘new motivation’ as his contract with Manchester City comes to the end after this season, following two successful years.

"Toure could sign for many big clubs like Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Also, we would like to see Barca join the race," the player’s agent Dimitri Seluk told The Sun newspaper.

The 29-year-old enjoyed a three-year successful spell at the Camp Nou before heading to England, where he won an FA Cup and Premier League winners' medals with City.

"He has done all he can do at City, and he needs new motivations," Seluk insisted adding "I have not spoken to Barca but they know the situation.

"I do not know if Madrid are interested, but Jose Mourinho has liked him since he was at Chelsea."
