Yaya Toure’s agent has revealed the midfielder wants to end his career at Manchester City.
The Ivorian’s agent, Dimitry Seluk, told the Sunday Mirror that he’s expressed a desire to ‘stay for life’ at the Etihad.
Seluk said: “Yaya loves Manchester City and, despite what is sometimes said, he is happy at the club.
“In fact, he would like to stay for life. He would love nothing better than to finish his playing career with City and then work for the club after that.
“That’s why I want City to give Yaya a new contract, to show him that they want him to be part of the future. It is not about money.
“It is about keeping Yaya at the club until his playing days are over and showing the club’s best player that he is respected and loved.
And Seluk suggested that Toure may even stay at the club after retirement, in a permanent official role.
He added:”When he stops playing, then Yaya could have an executive role, perhaps as sporting director. Think about it. He has played in Belgium, Ukraine, Greece, France, Spain and England.
