Yaya Toure is set to shun moves to both Italy and China and see out the final year of his Manchester City contract, according to the Mail Online.
The Ivory Coast international’s future at the Etihad Stadium has been the subject on much speculatio, not least since it was announced that Pep Guardiola, the man who sold him to City was to be Manuel Pellegrini’s replacement.
However, it now looks likely that the thirty-three year old will stay put for one final season, with his wages proving to be a sticking point for potential suitors.
So far, Toure has racked up two hundred and sixty-two appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring seventy-two goals.
He has won two Premier League titles and also tasted glory in both the FA Cup and League Cup, scoring in the finals of both on route to lifting the respective trophies.
