Pep Guardiola does not expect club-record scorer Sergio Aguero to leave Manchester City this summer.

There have been reports Aguero's former club Atletico Madrid are preparing an offer to lure the 29-year-old Argentina striker back to the Spanish capital.

Aguero's future has been the subject of recurring speculation throughout Guardiola's two years in charge at the Etihad Stadium but each time the City boss has played it down.

"I think it's not going to happen," said Guardiola. "My desire is it will not happen, but I don't know.

"It's happened many times in these press conferences and I said maybe a thousand times Sergio is going to stay until he decides 'my time here is over'.

"I said it last season and this season many times, and I say it today. That's why I say it isn't going to happen, but in football you never know."

Yaya Toure will leave Manchester City at the end of the season, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed.

The 34-year-old midfielder, who has been one of City's most influential players since joining the club from Barcelona in 2010, played a starring role in the Premier League title successes of 2012 and 2014.

He also featured in the FA Cup-winning side of 2011 and played in two League Cup final wins.

His involvement has declined this season, however, with the Ivorian making just 16 appearances during a campaign in which City have again won the Premier League and League Cup.

"He is not going to stay next season," said Guardiola.

City are due to be presented with the trophy for their latest title triumph after Sunday's clash with Huddersfield at the Etihad Stadium.

They will then ensure Toure is given a fitting send-off after their final home game against Brighton next Wednesday.

Guardiola said: "The Brighton game we will give him what he deserves, one of the most beautiful farewells a player can receive. All the game we will be focused on winning the game against Brighton for Yaya, and we are going to try to do it for him.

"We have amazing facilities but the club became what they did because of the players. Yaya Toure came here when this idea for the club started, and what we are in this moment is thanks to what this guy has done.
