Yaya Toure could stay at Man City and work with Pep Guardiola - Kolo Toure

Yaya Toure may stay at Manchester City next season and play under new manager Pep Guardiola, according to his brother Kolo Toure.

Yaya is expected by many to leave City in the summer when Guardiola takes over from Manuel Pellegrini.

The midfielder was sold by Guardiola to City in 2010 when the pair were at Barcelona together and his agent Dimitry Seluk said earlier this month that Yaya will likely be on his way out of the club at the end of the season.

However, older brother Kolo believes that the City player still has a future at the Etihad Stadium.

"Everybody wants to play for Pep," the Liverpool defender is quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News. "He is a top manager. They know each other very well and I don't think it will be a problem if they keep working together.

"I guess Yaya wants to play for Pep but it depends on what he is thinking and what Pep is thinking. It is a difficult question. He is my younger brother but I leave him to take his decisions for his career."

Yaya, who has been linked with moves to China, the United States and Inter Milan, was on the winning side as City beat Kolo's Liverpool on penalties in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.
