But the MEN claim Toure, 34, has no plans to leave England.

The former Barcelona star is said to be happy in the north west, with his family settled.

And he believes he is fit enough to cope with the demands of the top-flight despite not playing the full 90 minutes in any of his nine appearances this season.

Toure has, though, completed five matches in the EFL Cup and Champions League.

Everton, Burnley and Huddersfield are all reportedly options.

A mega payday in China does not appeal to the midfielder, it is believed, while City’s sister club New York City FC do not have the first option to sign him should he move to the MLS.

Toure has won two Premier League titles, two EFL Cups and the FA Cup during eight seasons at City.

Guardiola said: “Yaya Toure is not going to stay next season.

“The Brighton game, we will focus on winning and Yaya.

“We are going to try and win the game for him.

“Yaya came here at the start of the journey.

“Where we are now is because of what he has done. He was a key player.”
