Toure talks to wait - Pellegrini

Topics

Following comments by the agent of Yaya Toure, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is unwilling to discuss the midfielder's future.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he will not discuss the future of midfielder Yaya Toure until a more appropriate time.

Toure's agent was quoted on Thursday as saying his client was "90 per cent" certain to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.

However, Pellegrini is fully focused on City's Premier League run-in, with relegation-threatened QPR the visitors on Sunday.

"We talk about the next season in the right moment," he said at a pre-match news conference.

"Yaya has a contract here [until 2017]. We are focussed on our team and the players."

City's title defence came to an end last weekend as Chelsea beat Crystal Palace to clinch the Premier League crown.
