The Ivory Coast international’s future at the Etihad Stadium has been thrown into doubt after Dimitry Seluk claimed his client felt underappreciated and disrespected at City.

It is rumoured that one of the main reasons for this is the player’s belief that the club did nothing to acknowledge his 31st birthday earlier this week.

However, Seluk admitted that Toure could be persuaded to stay where he is should he be offered a coaching position or sporting director role with the club upon retirement.

“Of course. Like Real Madrid did with (Zinedine) Zidane for example. Zidane played then after that he started working for the club,” Seluk said.

“Yaya needs the club in the future.

“We don’t want any more pounds, not a longer contract, nothing like this, only really attention.

“More attention (paid) to Yaya and Yaya must feel happy at the club – that’s the main thing.

“I’ll tell you one more time, we don’t need one more pound in the contract.”
