The Ivory Coast global has spent the past eight years at the Etihad Stadium, winning eight major honours during that time.
Toure is out of contract at the end of the season and, as had been widely expected, he will not be offered a new deal by Guardiola.
Yaya Toure has become the forgotten hero of the Etihad since Guardiola took charge in 2016. We are going to try and win the game for him. We can not forget the period from Roberto Mancini, and especially Manuel Pellegrini. "He was a key player".
Toure arrived at City as their centrepiece but leaves a squad adorned with treasures, many of whom might never have arrived were it not for the hand he played in transforming the club into the powerhouse of today.

"I stay for sure one more year".
England is the third different country in which he has led a club to the league title following successes in Spain and Germany with Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.
