Yaya Toure: 'I want to stay at Manchester City'

Yaya Toure says Pep Guardiola is the reason he has been able to regain his best form at Manchester City and that he definitely wants to stay at the Etihad Stadium after this season.

Toure could well stay in the Premier League, with Seluk suggesting a shock move to City's arch rivals United could still go ahead, while praising Jose Mourinho as a great coach.

He said: "If Manchester United make an offer I will negotiate, no problem".

With the relationship eventually patched up by an apology to Guardiola, Toure fought his way back into the City team and that is where he is determined to stay.

"Yaya can, tomorrow, sign a contract with another club and after that for Manchester City it is too late". Now we have three options.

Toure explained he retained a dialogue with Guardiola throughout his absence from the first-team and credited the 46-year-old's honest approach for bringing about an upturn in form following a lacklustre 2015-16 under Manuel Pellegrini.

"Some clubs have contacted me", added Seluk.

'I was talking with him most of the time and people were not seeing that on the screen. We waited until March 15 for what Manchester City will say but until now Manchester City don't say anything. He will play in Europe.

Asked if he would be interested in United, Seluk told Sky Sports News: "Why not? I've talked with clubs from Spain and Italy as well". From the beginning of the season until now we have always showed we want to attack and score goals, that is the most important thing.

YAYA TOURE has backed manager Pep Guardiola's style of play and insists Manchester City can win trophies despite their Champions League exit this week.

"Clubs from England waited for the situation with Manchester City, but now we can speak in England and soon I will come to England for negotiations".

"We can not wait until the last minute, until June, and have no negotiations with anybody".
