Man City boss Mancini: Toure is not for sale

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists Yaya Toure is not for sale. Toure's representative said this week that the midfielder had achieved all he can at City and needs "new motivations."

But Mancini said: "Every day we have a new challenge here, every day.

"In 2½ years we won the FA Cup, the Premier League, the Community Shield.

"Now we need to win another cup, another Premier League.

"We need to work more for this challenge. I think Yaya thinks that, like me, like the other players.

"I am happy that Yaya wants a new challenge because I also want a new challenge, I want to win the next game, the next game in the Champions League, everything together."

Asked if he fears Toure will go, Mancini replied: "No, absolutely."
