Yaya Toure Leaving Manchester City After Season, Pep Guardiola Says

"He will get there fine", the Spaniard told reporters.

A second Premier League title came in 2013-14, with Toure making a striking 20 league goals from midfield.

During his Friday press conference ahead of Sunday's Premier League against Huddersfield, Guardiola confirmed that the Ivory Coast worldwide will be leaving the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Yaya Toure will be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season, meaning the Premier League looks set to have seen the last of the Ivorian powerhouse.

An instrumental figure in recent years, the 34-year-old has played a bit-part role this season and is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

Guardiola said: "The Brighton we will give him what he deserves, one of the most attractive experiences a player can receive".

For me and many others, it's the greatest season a midfielder has ever conjured it in the history of the Premier League.

"We have three games and have the chance to break most of the records and we're going to do that".

They will then ensure Toure, who is out of contract in the summer, is given a fitting send-off after their final home game against Brighton next Wednesday.

The transfer market has spiralled since his 2010 move to England from Barcelona, but the £24 million Toure cost now looks like one of the deals of the decade looking back on how his tenure overlaps with City's rise at home and overseas.

In the 2011 FA Cup final, Toure scored the winning goal against Stoke City, ending a 35-year trophy drought for his club.

"We have incredible facilities but the club became what they did because of the players".
