Toure to stay at Manchester City

26 May 2015, 11:22

London - Yaya Toure's agent performed a U-turn on Monday by declaring that the Ivory Coast midfielder would remain at Manchester City for next season.

Dimitri Seluk had previously claimed that Toure, 32, was "90 percent certain" to leave the Etihad Stadium amid reports of interest from Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

But in an interview with Sky Sports News, Seluk said that Toure would stay at City after the club informed him that he was "too important to let go".

Toure, whose contract expires in 2017, joined City from Barcelona in 2010 and has helped the previously success-starved club to two Premier League titles, the League Cup and the FA Cup.

A four-time African Footballer of the Year, he scored 20 goals as City surged to the league title in 2014, but endured a mixed campaign this season as Manuel Pellegrini's charges finished runners-up behind Chelsea.

Toure, who reportedly earns 220,000 ($340,310, 310,120 euros) per week, refused to answer questions about his future at the launch of FIFA's new anti-discrimination monitoring system in London earlier this month.

He is currently in North America on City's post-season tour.
