Even though he has found his opportunities scaled down this season, having been limited to nine appearances off the bench in the Blues' title-winning campaign, Toure will still qualify for his third Premier League winner's medal.
"Yaya Toure is not going to stay next season".
The Ivorian, an integral figure as City stabilised themselves as a top club, is set for his final home game against Brighton on Wednesday.
Yaya's influence on City has waned in recent years, and Dimitri Seluk, his agent, has threatened to tarnish his legacy with his outlandish antics.
He also featured in the FA Cup-winning side of 2011 and played in two League Cup final wins.
During his Friday press conference ahead of Sunday's Premier League against Huddersfield, Guardiola confirmed that the Ivory Coast worldwide will be leaving the Etihad Stadium.
"We have wonderful facilities but we can not forget the club became higher and higher because of the players".
"The Brighton game we will give him what he deserves, one of the most attractive farewells a player can receive".
And since our Premier League title win, delivered with five matches to spare, we've been speaking to Pep to get an insight into the way he sees the game.
"I think there was a moment where things were lined up, it was there, but Man Utd chose someone else, I'm talking many years ago, and he took a different way".
City host Brighton on 9 May before travelling to Southampton for the final game of the season.
He gained superstar status in England has won seven trophies over his eight-year stint at the Etihad Stadium.
