Yaya Touré is open to staying at Manchester City
The Ivorian has been heavily linked with a move to Italian side Inter Milan in recent weeks, with his agent claiming discussions had been held.
Such a move would see Touré reunited with former City manager Roberto Mancini, who is said to be very keen on a reunion with the powerful midfielder.
However Mancini is not the manager whom Touré wishes to work under next season, as he is holding out that Guardiola will be keen to keep him at the Etihad.
Roberto Mancini brought Touré to Manchester City in 2010
Pep Guardiola will take over Manchester City in July
This is despite the fact that Guardiola moved him on six years ago, but Touré is said to have no issues with the former Barcelona coach.
Touré has one year remaining on his £220,000 a week contract, and is thought to be interested only in staying in the Premier League.
He has also rejected two offers of £30 million each from Chinese clubs Jiangsu Suning and Shanghai SIPG, and has no intention of following the likes of Ramires and compatriot Gervinho to the far east.
Is time up for Yaya at City or will he be offered the chance to stay by Guardiola?
Touré, now 33, has spent six years in the North West with the Citizens, making 195 league appearances, scoring 57 goals and winning the League Cup and Premier League twice, as well as scoring the winning goal against Stoke City in the FA Cup final in 2011.
He has also won African Player of the Year four times consecutively, from 2011 to 2014.
