The Mirror understands that Yaya Toure is keen to stay in England beyond this summer, even if he is surplus to requirements at Manchester City.
The Ivory Coast international was sold by to the Manchester outfit by Pep Guardiola, and the former Barca manager will replace Manuel Pellegrini in the City dugout in the summer.
Toure, who turns thirty-three in May, moved to the Etihad Stadium from Barcelona in the summer of 2010 and has since racked up two hundred and fifty-eight appearances in all competitions, scoring seventy-two goals.
He hit the winning goal in the 2011 FA Cup final victory over Stoke City while he also netted in the 2013 League Cup final win over Sunderland.
He has also been part of the squads that won the Premier League title in both 2012 and 2014, and was named the club’s player of the year in the latter.
