Premier League champions Manchester City are likely to make only three new signings this summer, reports James Cooper.

Toure's agent has told Sky Sports News that the midfielder will stay at City if he is offered a role within the club when he finishes playing. The Ivory Coast international's future at the Etihad Stadium has been thrown into doubt after Dimitry Seluk claimed his client felt underappreciated and disrespected at City. Seluk suggested that one of main reasons for Toure's unhappiness was the club's failure to mark his 31st birthday last week. But in an interview with Sky Sports News, the Ukrainian claimed Toure would be more than happy to stay should he be promised a coaching position or sporting director's role when he hangs up his boots. Seluk said: "Of course. Like Real Madrid did with (Zinedine) Zidane for example. Zidane played then after that he started working for the club. "Yaya needs the club in the future. "We don't want any more pounds, not a longer contract, nothing like this, only really attention. "More attention (paid) to Yaya and Yaya must feel happy at the club - that's the main thing. "I'll tell you one more time, we don't need one more pound in the contract."
