Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is happy to see out the final year of his contract with the club, according to the Mirror.

The Ivorian, who's paid £220,000-a-week, could leave on a free transfer next season, if City choose not to renew his contract. 

Despite a number of spats with the club, and with incoming manager Pep Guardiola, Toure will likely stay at the Etihad Stadium for another year.

The club are said to be listening to offers for the 33-year-old, and according to the Mirror, a number of clubs, including Inter Milan and some from China, are interested in signing the powerhouse midfielder.

However, Toure is unconvinced by the options so far and wants to play for a club that can challenge at the top level.  

His agent on the other hand, has not ruled out a move to Milan just yet.

Dimitri Seluk said: "Inter are a great club and Mancini is a great coach, but there are some things that need addressing.

"Obviously it would be easier seeing him in Milan at the end of next season as his contract will have expired by then."

The Nerazzurri are currently under restrictions from UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules, meaning that they can't afford Toure's wages this summer.  

Once he becomes a free agent next year, it's likely Toure will have more suitors ready to snap him up.

Although he is coming to the end of his career, the Ivorian still has plenty to offer at the top level, and will likely be a part of Guardiola's plans at the Etihad next season, despite the two having a frosty relationship due to their time spent together at Barcelona.

The Spaniard will finally take charge of City over the coming days as a number of players return to training early in July.

Guardiola won't be the only new face around the club, however, with new signings Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito both set to join up with their new teammates.
