Man City midfielder Yaya Toure will leave the Premier League champions this summer, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed.
After eight memorable years, the iconic Ivorian’s Etihad stay is coming to an end. The 34-year old will get his fitting send-off in the final home game of the season against Brighton next Wednesday night .
“Yaya is not going to stay next season,” revealed Pep.
“At the Brighton game we will make the focus winning and Yaya.
“We are going to try and win the game for him. We cannot forget we have magnificent facilities, but we cannot forget we are here because of the players.
“He came here, and we cannot forget that or what he has achieved for this Club.
“For Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini, Yaya was a key, key player.”
Club legend Yaya Toure has made 315 appearances for the Blues since joining from Barcelona in July 2010, scoring 82 goals.
