Yaya Toure to leave Manchester City this summer”

"But the best way to arrive at the World Cup is to play good in these three games", said the manager of the final Premier League matches.

And as he prepared his side to face Huddersfield on Sunday and Brighton on Wednesday in two home games, Guardiola confirmed that the Ivory Coast worldwide will be leaving the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola announced earlier today that the Ivorian, who turns 35 a week from this Sunday, will leave the club upon the expiration of his contract in June, bringing to an end eight successful years in Manchester. Toure, playing in a midfield two alongside Fernandinho for the duration of the campaign, scored 20 Premier League goals and registered 9 assists for his teammates in 35 outings.

"The facilities are wonderful and it's the flawless place to work - except for the sky!" "He's done an unbelievable job last season and this season but we want to win to celebrate with our fans".

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

"We can not forget the period from Roberto Mancini, and especially Manuel Pellegrini - Yaya was the key, key, key, key, key, key player. We are delighted to do this for Yaya".

"I stay for sure one more year. We have time for everything in life", he added. "All the game will l be focussed on winning the game and trying to do it for him".

The Brazilian midfielder told reporters: "It's a fact, we have a clear chance to break those records and we have to go for it".

As he looked ahead to Sunday's penultimate home clash with Huddersfield Town, which will see City presented with the Premier League title, the Blues boss also took time to hail the club's working environment.

John Stones could also feature as Guardiola said "he has trained good this week".
