Yaya Toure has opened the door to a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain, but added he feels the Premier League "suits me best."

Toure is central to Manchester City's Premier League and Champions League bids this season. However, Toure, who played for Monaco before joining Barcelona, told RMC he would not rule out a return to Ligue 1 with big-spending PSG.

"Everything's possible. Why not? In life, you never know," Toure said. "Everything's going well at City for the moment, but you never know. When you have big teams like that, where there are big players, of course it's attractive.

"To be part of an adventure like that is exceptional. To work with great players is always my objective. It allows you to learn many things. In football, you never stop learning. For me, PSG are a big club."

Having signed a new four-year deal at the Etihad Stadium only last year, Toure is, however, committed to City's cause.

His displays for the team, in addition to his impressive stats of 11 goals in 21 Premier League displays this season, add credence to his claims English football is where his talents can best shine.

"Since I arrived in England, I've felt it's the league that suits me best. I feel good at this club. And there are players around me who help me a lot too," Toure said.

"It's true that at Barcelona, I played with great players and won quite a few trophies. But here, I have more responsibility. And I manage to cope with that. The Premier League is the league in which I feel best. There's rhythm, intensity. There's everything I want."
