My dream is to make City bigger than Manchester United – Toure

Yaya Toure could be extending his Manchester City career beyond next summer after repairing his relationship with manager Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City appear unlikely to offer the Ivorian a new contract when his current £230,000-a-week deal runs out at the end of the season.

Guardiola’s side have won all five games Toure has started this season, and he is likely to play a more prominent role now that Ilkay Gundogan is expected to miss the rest of the campaign with a knee injury.

The 33-yr-old midfielder said, ‘When I signed for City, I came to this club to make history, I want this club to be bigger than Manchester United. I know it’s going to be a lot of work, but that’s my dream.

‘I want to make something very important. I already won two Premier League titles and I want more than that, another new story.

‘I have been lucky to play at big clubs – Barcelona and Olympiakos. Those teams were always used to being champions. But City, it was something different, and I am happy now,’ he concluded.
