Transfer Update: Yaya Toure

Yaya Toure was not part of Pep Guardiola's recent clearout at Manchester City, but his future has not yet been resolved – here is an update on the African's situation.

Click through the gallery to see which five players have left City.

The 34-year-old seemed destined to leave the Citizens after a public spat between his agent Dimitri Seluk and Guardiola in the beginning of the 2016/17 season.

The Spaniard left Toure out of his squad for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, which upset Seluk so much that he publicly criticised the tactician.

However, Toure later apologised and was then reinstated into Guardiola's plans. The Ivorian made 31 appearances during the coach's first season at City, and seemingly convinced the club to give him a new contract.

The four-time African Player of the Year was not part of Guardiola's recent clearout that saw Pablo Zabaleta, Willy Caballero, Bacary Sagna, Jesus Navas and Gael Clichy all leave the club.

Toure's current deal expires at the end of June, but talks between his agent and the club are reportedly progressing well.

"We are talking," Seluk told Sky Sports.

"We will see what happens, but City is a club that is in Yaya's heart."
