Inter Milan are closing on a deal with Manchester City for their star midfielder Yaya Toure, according to Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti.
Inter legend Javier Zanetti revealed that the deal is likely to be concluded once the season ends.
Zanetti said: "We are at the stage where we hope we can complete it. Yaya would give us that leap in quality."
Boss Roberto Mancini is keen to team up with his former player once again at San Siro.
The Serie A side are eyeing the former Barcelona player despite of having a fine of £15million fine from UEFA as they broke Financial Fair Play rules.
The StarSports believe that the Inter boss is keen to land his former star but the wages might make some problem in his move.
Mancini who signed Toure from Barcelona in 2010 will have to pay £220,000-a-week to secure his deal.
Inter Milan have been struggling in the past few seasons, currently on eight spot in the league. The Italian boss believes that the arrival of Toure can take them back to the glory days.
Also, his agent Dimitri Seluk revealed earlier this month that his client is likely to leave the Citizens at the end of the season.
Roma and PSG are also said to be interested in his move but the former City boss is confident that he will beat the other sides.
