Manchester City Zabaleta announcement opens door for Bilic — Transfer Focus

19 Mai 2017

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta will leave the club at the end of the season after nine-years at The Etihad, the club have confirmed.

A 2-1 success over Leicester on Saturday ensured two more victories, against West Bromwich Albion and Watford, will guarantee them a place in Europe's elite club competition. "The appreciation from the fans has been massive", he told reporters. "Sure. At the clubs I worked at before, I am not here, but here we have a second chance". "Especially the next one at home in front of our own fans because I think they deserve it". That's why it will be a very emotional moment.

"City had a big and ambitious project and this is why I chose to come".

Manchester City hosted the defending Premier League champions Leicester at Etihad Stadium on Saturday looking to cement their place in the Premier League's top four spots.

City boss Guardiola said: "Nine years here - to replace that you need a guy that stays nine years here".

"We have not heard anything", Seluk said to Sky Sports.

"I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the 'noisy neighbours, ' and this is something that I have been since that time! We play for a lot of things, (it is) a real final for us and we are going to be ready for this game".

"We had to work really hard to become a better club and look at where we are today".

However there is a possibility that it may be extended longer than expected (ie into 2018) or the cuts deepened . There would be the "higher risk of a break down in the agreement to noncompliance", said Ganguli.

"Now what I want are more trophies for the club".

The 32-year-old Argentinian, who joined City from Espanyol in 2008, is out of contract in July, and has been heavily linked with a switch to the Hammers in the summer.

"He's tough, he gets into challenges he has no right to win and comes out on the winning end, but more than anything it's his passion and commitment". More than anything it's his passion and his commitment to the club.

"If you need to go to war in big games you know you've got Zaba with you. And with him you have that feeling he could save the game".

It is a remarkable turnaround for Toure, 34, after he was frozen out of Pep Guardiola's squad at the start of the season because of fitness problems and critical remarks made towards the club by his agent.

"There are clubs who have already qualified for next season's Champions League, but for Yaya, Manchester City is a very special club".

"Of course, with the players who were a long time here, it's so important because with Pablo it's how he teaches the new generation and the people who are coming from behind".
