Manuel Pellegrini believes Yaya Toure can still find the challenges he wants at Manchester City.
Toure, City's midfield driving force in recent seasons, was quoted this week as saying he was open to "new challenges".
That has been interpreted as a hint he could look to move on, while the Ivorian's agent Dimitri Seluk has also made critical comments about the club.
Despite that, Toure has remained at City and Pellegrini claims to see no reason why that should not remain the case.
Pellegrini said: "Maybe the new challenge is at City also.
"There are lot of different places you can have it but City also is a challenge and I am sure Yaya is very happy here.
"We have a project here, every year we are trying to improve.
"Maybe you cannot win titles every year but I think the project of the club is to improve the squad, to improve as a club so there are a lot of important things and I think it is an important challenge."
Yaya Toure's agent has reportedly claimed offers have been made for the Manchester City midfielder and that the intention is to sit down with the Blues soon for discussions about the future.
Reports are suggesting Toure could be set for a move away in the summer, with the likes of Paris St Germain and Inter Milan - managed by his former City boss Roberto Mancini - being mentioned in reports as possible destinations.
Ivory Coast international Toure was quoted on Tuesday as saying he is open to ''new challenges'' and that he will not stay at a club simply to collect wages.
Those comments came two days after his agent Dimitri Seluk was quoted as saying "two of the biggest clubs" had asked him about Toure's availability, adding: "If City want Yaya to leave, they should come out and say so."
And, quoted by Sky Sports News on Wednesday, Seluk said:
We have had different offers for Yaya but we must speak to Manchester City. People think he will stay because of money but we don't care about money. If Man City don't want him - no problem.
I want someone to say that they want Yaya to stay at Manchester City. Yaya is a legend at the club. All the supporters like him, he's helped them make history.
Napoli manager Rafa Benitez says he has not spoken to Manchester City about replacing Manuel Pellegrini.
The former Liverpool boss has denied rumours he is in contact with the Premier League champions, as pressure on Pellegrini grows.
"I have not had contacts with City, unlike what I've read in England.
"I have spoken to the (Napoli) president via messages but we have not been able to meet due to our busy playing schedule in order to evaluate the business plan.
"Now our focus is on matters on the pitch."
