Manchester City star Yaya Toure looks to have put his conflict with the club behind him after revealing his intentions to remain at the Etihad years to come, Mirror reports.
The Ivorian midfielder became a top target for a host of European sides after hinting he was unhappy in Manchester and wanted to move elsewhere.
However, as the new season draws closer Toure admits he won’t be moving anywhere and finally clarified his future with the side.
“I’m feeling fine,” he said. “It’s good to start training again. It’s been a difficult pre-season. Unfortunately it was a difficult summer for my family.
“Now I’m very happy to join the team and the manager.
“Everyone is positive. Last year was a good season and this year, I hope and think, will be amazing because all the big teams are signing good players.
“It was not a case of me wanting to leave the club.
“I stayed quiet and at the end of the day it’s my decision: I will stay at Man City for as long as possible. The matter is closed now.
“The most important thing was to try to focus again. With the loss of my brother it was quite hard. I am a muslim, I believe in God.
“Sometimes you can have everything – but this was a difficult situation.”
