Toure arrived at City as their centrepiece but leaves a squad adorned with treasures, many of whom might never have arrived were it not for the hand he played in transforming the club into the powerhouse of today.

On Friday, manager of Yaya Toure, Pep Guardiola, has confirmed that the player will leave Manchester City when his contract expires at the end of this season.

Alongside their league triumph, City also won the Carabao Cup back in February with a 3-0 demolishing of Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side. "We are going to try and win the game for him", the City boss continued.

A meeting with Huddersfield represents the flawless occasion in which to re-write the record books, with City set to get their hands on the Premier League trophy ahead of an outing at the Etihad Stadium.

"We have incredible facilities but the club became what they did because of the players. That's why we are delighted to prepare for Sunday's game, for our celebration, and after for Yaya".

"I stay for sure one more year", Guardiola said.

He played a key role in the Premier League title successes of 2012 and 2014 but has fallen down the pecking order this term and started just seven games in all competitions. "We have time for everything in life", he added.

The 34-year-old has spent the past eight years at the Etihad Stadium will make his final appearance against Brighton on Wednesday.

"Of course it will be a special day".

"He had a little problem but has had a ideal training session", Guardiola said.
