Toure denies planning Man City departure

Yaya Toure denies he wants to leave Manchester City.

The Ivorian insists he has "nothing planned" after his birthday moans earlier this month.

"For the moment, there's nothing planned," Toure told RFI. "Too many things have been said, that annoyed me.

"I want to take advantage of this opportunity to put things into context. It's very important.

"I simply said that it was nice to be a player who is quite coveted and it was an honour to play for PSG.

"My goal is the World Cup. The country awaits us."

Reports in France had claimed that PSG would turn to Toure if Marco Verratti moved on this summer and, in the France Football interview, the City midfielder confirmed he has left things in the hands of his agent.

"Given the magnificent season Manchester City have had, everyone talks about me and everything is open," Toure said.

"My agent, Dimitry (Seluk), is hanging on the telephone and he knows what he has to do, I have complete confidence in him.

"Nobody knows what can happen tomorrow, my attention is on the World Cup and we will see afterwards.

"Yes, I have said I would like to finish my career at Barcelona. You never know because football moves quickly, you never know."
