Zabaleta set for fond send-off at City, Toure still in dark

City boss Guardiola said: "Nine years here - to replace that you need a guy that stays nine years here".

Yaya Toure's camp claim they are yet to hear from Manchester City amid reports the midfielder is set to be offered a new contract.

Five other out-of-contract players - Jesus Navas, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Willy Caballero and Tosin Adarabioyo - are also waiting to find out about their futures, though most are expected to join Zabaleta in leaving as Guardiola reshapes the squad.

"Of course, with the players who were a long time here, it's so important because with Pablo it's how he teaches the new generation and the people who are coming from behind".

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted his players were confused on whether to attack or defend their lead as they held on to a 2-1 win against Leicester City on Saturday.

Manchester City can end season on a positive note by sealing a Champions League spot for next season. They are going to play to win the games.

"Maybe it is the first time I announce it but they have to come to support more than ever and to to express gratitude for one of the most important players in the history of Manchester City".




Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on the departing Pablo Zabaleta: "His impact here was unbelievable".

Pep Guardiola insists happiness for him "does not depend on titles", and Manchester City have not won silverware this season because they have "not been good enough".

Though there are a number of first-team player contracts now under consideration, Pablo's situation is the only one that has been fully finalised. They could even secure Champions League qualification if Arsenal drop points against Sunderland on the same night, but their tight battle with the Gunners and Liverpool for two spaces could go to the final weekend.

"This is the story of this season; we had improved during the last months and I hope we will improve more next season".

"Now what I want are more trophies for the club".

In an interview with Sport 360 this week, Zabaleta said: "As players, we can not play for 20 years".

"I have to be honest, I notice we are having problems in the boxes and we didn't solve it so I have to analyse it myself this summer", said Guardiola.
