Manchester City's Yaya Toure gunning for a European place

Manchester City's latest big-name signing Yaya Toure is convinced the club are poised to join the European elite.

City yesterday stepped up their latest summer spending spree by signing Toure from Barcelona on a five-year deal.

Toure said: “I'm very happy to sign for Manchester City. I love the Premier League and I watch it all the time and City did very well to finish fifth, but I hope we can improve on that by qualifying for the Champions League.

“This is a big club and that has to be our first objective and then we have to look at winning championships as well.”
