The Ivory Coast defenders future at the Etihad Stadium has come under question in recent times but he has made it clear that he wants to stay in England for as long as possible, hopefully with Premier League champions City, who stuck by him throughout his doping ban last year.
"I like it in England. I have been here for all my career and it's great to play in England. I really enjoy it, that is why I brought my brother (Yaya) here," he told Sky Sports.
"There are challenges coming and there are changes in life, and I will deal with that if it happened. I wish to stay, but you never know.
"The club has been here for me. Even through my tough time (doping ban), everyone was behind me - the people and the staff at the club, everybody, the chairman, everybody.
"To have this support is great and that is why it would be much more difficult to leave."
