Dimitry Seluk reveals that his client Yaya Toure will remain at Manchester City if he is offered a coaching role at the club upon retirement.

Yaya Toure's agent has revealed that the midfielder will stay at Manchester City if he is offered a role within the club when he retires.

The 31-year-old's future at the Etihad Stadium came into question when agent Dimitry Seluk claimed that his client was left unhappy following the club's failure to acknowledge his birthday last week.

However, in an interview with Sky Sports News the Ukrainian now says that Toure would be happy to stay with the Citizens should he be offered a coaching position or sporting director's role when he calls a time on his career.

"Of course. Like Real Madrid did with [Zinedine] Zidane for example," Seluk said. "Zidane played then after that he started working for the club. Yaya needs the club in the future.

"We don't want any more pounds, not a longer contract, nothing like this, only really attention. More attention [paid] to Yaya and Yaya must feel happy at the club - that's the main thing.

"I'll tell you one more time, we don't need one more pound in the contract."

Toure has three years remaining on his current deal with City.
