Manchester City legend Toure has ended talks with Botafogo due to family reasons.
Botafogo's vice-president Ricardo Rotenberg: "I chatted today with Yaya all afternoon and now on the phone with his English agent.
"Yaya told us that he really wants to play in Botafogo but this is a very impactful decision for him and his family for an immediate decision. Moving to Brazil.
"In conversation with the agent that for now we will end the negotiations but the doors are open in Botafogo. To be clear, Yaya did not accept - saying no.
"We've closed it but I still believe in Botafogo. Please, we will continue to send good messages to him and his wife."
