Yaya has interesting offers (but not from City)

Manchester City centre back John Stones is fit to face West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Tuesday after recovering from a muscular problem that has kept him out of action since April 8, manager Pep Guardiola said.

Because of the timing of his arrival, and the service he has given to City, Zabaleta has become closely associated with the modern era at the Etihad Stadium, while the quality of his performances has made him a popular figure with the club's supporters.

"Hopefully all the fans can come to support us - we are playing for a lot of important things - more than ever, and to express gratitude for one of the most important players in the history of Manchester City".

City began Guardiola's reign with ten straight wins but will end the campaign trophyless, with the likelihood of a Champions League place their only tonic.

It's widely considered to be the most iconic moment since the English top flight was rebranded in 1992 and Silva, who was a key player as City won their first title in 44 years, says it was an "unforgettable" occasion.

"This is the story of this season; we had improved during the last months and I hope we will improve more next season".

He said: "I have a lot of respect for Pablo".

Champions League qualification was arguably the bare minimum requirement this season and they will look to secure it with wins over West Brom and Watford. "I don't think teams from Tony Pulis' history, Stoke and now West Brom, play a game thinking it doesn't matter".

Sources close to the club suggest that officials and the manager are happy to offer Toure a new deal, but this will depend on whether or not he is happy with a sizable wage cut. "I never saw one player in my life go to the pitch and not try to win the game".

"Both they have quality enough to see who wins the game for the side".

"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".

"His impact here was incredible, he was one of the first players to come here, he has helped the club to where it is right now", Guardiola added. For me, we couldn't let people say something like that about us.
