But according to The Mirror, it could be the last time they see him play football under the ownership of their club.
Apparently the Ivory Coast midfielder is the latest player to be linked with French money-bags outfit Paris Saint-Germain and Laurent Blanc is preparing an offer.
Toure could be set to move after becoming upset with a number of things at the Etihad stadium.
Issues have escalated from the simple mistake of missing a birthday to the refusal to see his sick brother – who has since tragically passed away.
“At the end of the season, I wanted to stay for four or five days with my brother before I flew to prepare for the World Cup with Ivory Coast,” he said. “Except that City did not want to give me a few days.
“I went to celebrate the title championship in Abu Dhabi while my brother was in his sickbed. By fortune, Kolo (another brother) was at his bedside.
“I blame myself for not insisting and for not leading them to respect me. However, club officials knew that I had been suffering for a few months, seeing the health of my brother decline.”
