Yaya Toure will leave Manchester City this summer unless a new contract is agreed next week, his agent has said.
The Ivory Coast midfielder, who signed for City in 2010, has just a year left to run on his current four-year contract.
His agent Dimitri Seluk revealed he recently turned down a lucrative offer to play in China and has now issued City with an ultimatum.
Seluk told The Sun: “In the next week we must find a solution about whether Yaya will prolong his contract with City or he will go to another club.
“But if he leaves City it will surely not be for another English club.”
Seluk said in January this year, amid reports of interest from a host of clubs across Europe, that Toure would consider his options this summer.
Seluk also said last year that Toure was “90 per cent certain” to leave the Etihad in the summer of 2015.
