The 33-year-old's agent earlier revealed that he has opened discussions with other clubs over a possible move at the end of the season, even suggesting that Manchester United would be an option, but Toure insists that his preference is to remain at the Etihad Stadium. "I have spoken with clubs in different countries - Italy and Spain", he said. "Zlatan Ibrahimovic was together with Yaya in Barcelona", he added.
'If Manchester United make an offer I'll negotiate, no problem'.
Toure has 78 goals and 47 assists in 289 games in his Manchester City career.
The midfielder was left out of City's plans at the start of the season after falling out with Guardiola and looked destined to leave the club. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.theeagleonline.com.ng as the source.
With the relationship eventually patched up by an apology to Guardiola, Toure fought his way back into the City team and that is where he is determined to stay.
"I understand this is two clubs who are rivals but for me, for example, this is not a problem from Yaya or from me".
"If we get a good offer from another club we will sign immediately", he said according to Sky Sports.
But after City were heavily criticised in the wake of the Monaco loss, Toure disagrees with suggestions they will not be able to win trophies under Guardiola's free-flowing style. If they don't want then we will find another club. From yesterday we officially started negotiating with different clubs about his future.
"Clubs from England waited for the situation with Manchester City, but now we can speak in England and soon I will come to England for negotiations. But we can not wait until the last minute".
