Yaya has interesting offers (but not from City)

The midfielder was nearly certain to leave the Manchester club after he was frozen out of the first-team squad by Guardiola in the beginning of the campaign.

"It's one of those debates that as players we'd love to get involved in but we're not allowed to so that's what makes it very frustrating as they aren't willing to listen".

It was confirmed on Saturday that full-back Zabaleta will leave City at the end of this season after nine years at the club, with West Ham his likely destination.

Manchester City's Argentinian defender Pablo Zabaleta warms up ahead of the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on May 6, 2017.

"It was a slow start to the season but we picked up and it's been a fantastic journey and a fantastic ride", said Pulis.

City have way more to play for than West Brom.

"The club had got a buzz about it that it hasn't had for a long time, at least not since I've been at the club".




Guardiola hopes Zabaleta finishes his time at the club by helping them secure qualification for next season's Champions League, with Guardiola's men now ahead of Arsenal in the race for fourth place. I'm sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.

"He wants to play in the Champions League next season but he would also play for an ambitious club who have big plans - a club who have a project". Senior City sources said that there was a "strong chance" Touré would be offered a one-year contract...

"They are professional and are going to play to win, ' Guardiola added". They come to Manchester in poor form, but they'll make the game tough and City will need to fight hard to get a win.

Meanwhile, Guardiola claims his first season at City would have ended in the sack at former clubs Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

This season the Argentine hasn't been quite so heavily involved - he has made just 19 appearances in the Premier League - but he will be determined to conclude his City career in positive fashion, with Guardiola's side attempting to secure a top-four finish.

"That's why Pablo Zabaleta is so, so important".
