The Manchester City midfielder would love to play with the two Brazil stars, even if it meant changing his passport

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure joked he would change his passport to become Brazilian and play alongside Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

A former captain of Ivory Coast, Toure made 102 appearances for his country, including winning the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Led by Barcelona star Neymar and to a lesser extent Liverpool's Coutinho, Brazil are flying under Tite – topping CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying by four points.

Toure said the Brazil pair were two players he would love to play with, jokingly suggesting he may have to try and find a way to feature for the South American giants.

"Playing with Neymar, with Philippe Coutinho … I want to play with them," he told Globo.

"Maybe I will change my passport. We'll see."
