Seko Fofana left Manchester City for Italian side Udinese in 2016, ending a three-year stay at the Premier League club in search of regular football elsewhere.
Though highly-rated, the French midfielder failed to break into City’s first-team plans and has since become an important player at Udinese as a regular for the Serie A side.
Fofana has often been linked with moves to bigger clubs, and in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport was asked about his ambitions for the future – and he revealed that he’d turn down his favourite club, PSG, if it meant an Etihad return.
“I’d like to play in European cups,” Fofana said. “I love Paris and I support PSG, but if I had to choose a club where I’d like to go one day it would be Manchester City.
“I was there and it’s still in my head. I met Yaya Touré, my role model. He was a hero for me, now we are friends”.
Fofana is now 23 and while a return to Manchester City seems like a long shot, the midfielder still has his former club in his heart and would welcome their interest were it ever to arrive.
