Toure to leave Manchester City at the end of the season

Because of the way he has been left to fade away at Manchester City by Pep Guardiola this season, Yaya Toure is in danger of becoming one of the forgotten legends of the Premier League.

Toure joined City from Barcelona, when Guardiola was in charge there, in 2010 and missed a part of last season following a public spat between his agent Dimitri Seluk and the Spaniard.

The City manager was adamant, however, that Toure will receive a memorable send-off when the club end their home campaign against Brighton next week, an indication of his contribution to the cause over almost a decade.

Guardiola's team has undoubtedly moved on this year, with Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho forcing Toure out of the picture, but there was a time not so long ago when the Ivorian did the jobs of both players under the management of Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini.

With just 10 days to go until the end of the season, there is still scope for some major changes in the table - with only nine points separating 10th-placed Newcastle and 18th-placed Southampton. We are going to try and win the game for him.

"I stay for sure one more year".

He also featured in the FA Cup-winning side of 2011 and played in two League Cup final wins.

"We have awesome facilities but the club became what they did because of the players", he explained. "He was a key player", he said.

But as he prepares to celebrate his 34th birthday on May 13, Toure leaves City knowing the newly crowned English champions are likely moving on to bigger and better things, with him to thank for a good portion of that success.

But the goal of winning the Champions League proved beyond City this season, although Guardiola insisted he felt no frustration this week when their quarter-final conquerors, Liverpool, reached the final.

He said, "Yaya came here at the start of the journey".

He gained superstar status in England has won seven trophies over his eight-year stint at the Etihad Stadium.
