Yaya Toure's agent predicts Manchester City star will leave the Etihad this summer and hits out at Pep Guardiola

Etihad Stadium

Dimitry Seluk thinks that his client is set to enjoy only a brief reunion with Pep Guardiola.

Yaya Toure's agent has predicted that his client will look to leave Manchester City in the summer, and took a swipe at future City boss Pep Guardiola, according to The Sun.

It was confirmed yesterday that Guardiola will replace Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad at the end of the season (via The Sun), which appears to have prompted Dimitry Seluk to suggest that the 32-year-old may look to move on, before questioning how successful the Bayern Munich boss will be in the Premier League if he cannot call upon Toure.

"I think Yaya will leave the club. But before leaving I hope he will win again the league and all the cups," he said, as reported by The Sun.

"Yaya won every trophy in England without Guardiola. Will Guardiola win without Yaya?"

Toure and Guardiola worked together when the Spaniard was appointed as Barcelona manager in 2008. Despite previously being an important member of the side for the Catalan giants during his first couple of years with the club, the Ivory Coast midfielder found his opportunities limited once Guardiola took charge, as he often opted to select Sergio Busquets instead.

Having been somewhat frozen out at the Nou Camp, Toure moved to the Sky Blues, and proved to be an integral member of the side that won two Premier League title medals.

But while Toure has still been impressive for City this season - scoring five goals and contributing five assists in the top flight - the performances of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva have arguably suggested that the club can continue to be title contenders once Toure departs, perhaps leaving Seluk concerned about what role his client would play under the club's new boss.
