The Spaniard famously sold the powerful midfielder to the Citizens in summer 2010 whilst serving as Barcelona manager.
And having notably declined since netting 24 times across all competitions as Manchester City lifted the 2013/14 Premier League title, many expect Toure to suffer a similar fate before the summer transfer window slams shut.
Indeed, the 100-cap Ivory Coast international is yet to start a fixture under Guardiola, utilised only as a substitute by the new Etihad boss during pre-season.
Likewise, Toure’s not been included in the squad travelling to Romania to face Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday evening.
But outspoken agent Dimitri Seluk, who is often the first to link the 33-year-old with rival clubs, has insisted Toure is fully focused on fighting his way into Guardiola’s first-team plans.
As quoted by Sky Sports, Seluk said; “Pep is the best manager in the world and I just hope he gives Yaya the chance to prove he is still good enough for City.
“Yaya is the perfect professional and he will do his job. City fans know he will do his best. He has not been included against Sunderland or Bucharest, but that’s okay.
“He is fit to play right now. Guardiola has to learn all about the players he has available. The performance against Sunderland was far from perfect.
“This is a very good process for Yaya. It will allow him in training and then in matches that he is still a wonderful player. But there is no talk of a transfer. Yaya will stay and fight.”
