LONDON. — Yaya Toure has confirmed he will stay at Manchester City this summer in an exclusive interview with the Manchester Evening News .

The Ivorian is also convinced he can rediscover his finest form – and revealed his determination to triumph in the Champions League.

Toure’s comments come after City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak told him that the club would not consider selling him amid interest from Inter Milan.

In those talks he was also informed of Manuel Pellegrini’s intention to make world class additions to his squad, following a trophyless campaign.

Toure said: “I will definitely stay. The fans don’t have to be worried.

“My target this year is to try to do everything possible to make this team improve well and I am sure with my experience, maybe I hope, with the players coming in a couple of weeks, a couple of months, definitely it is going to be a strong City next year.” City’s first target is to reclaim the title from Chelsea — but Toure says the ultimate goal is success in Europe.

“It is one of my big targets because City have been in the shadow of United for so long,” he said. “Sometimes their fans are coming back, saying we are the top because we have already won the Champions League.

“What I want for the fans is the Champions League. I will do everything that’s possible.”

Toure has endured a frustrating season, in which he’s failed reproduce his best form. — AFP.
