Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has hinted he could leave the club for Paris St Germain in the January transfer window.
The 30-year-old has found his first-team opportunities limited, having served a six-month doping ban, because of the fine form of Joleon Lescott and Vincent Kompany.
Toure was also disappointed by the decision of City officials to fine him six weeks' wages for failing the drugs test, having previously backed him during the ordeal.
With the January transfer window due to open soon, the Ivory Coast international admits he will review his future if his playing time continues to be restricted.
"It's hard to foresee oneself leaving during the January transfer window when you're at City," Toure told France Football.
"But everything can happen very quickly in football. It'll depend on how much playing time I get.
"Could I be interested in Paris St Germain? Again, it'll all be down to game time I get with City. I want to play matches and if things don't progress I'll ask myself questions.
"PSG are a big club these days like City, Arsenal or AC Milan. They want to become one of the world's best clubs and are investing money in great players.
"They are not to be sneezed at. I can't think of a single player who would refuse to join PSG."
Toure admits the club's decision to fine him came as a total shock but he is now totally focused on playing football regularly.
"I was surprised to be fined by City. It was difficult for me, although they explained their reasons to me," he added.
"I accepted it in order to put an end to the matter and to get back playing once more.
"I'm 30, at the peak of my career, and I want to prove to certain people I'm still hungry and they're wrong about me."
