Man City earn record-breaking farewell for Yaya

Riyad Mahrez was devastated after his move to City fell through and hopes it can still happen

"It's fantastic because we did that (break the records) in the day we always will remember - the day for Yaya".

Despite his legendary status, he has hardly figured under Pep Guardiola this season - and is looking to move to another Premier League club.

But Guardiola said to be considered the best they have to win more Premier League titles. Three in six years Premier Leagues, but in this moment just one, but we've done better than the others, we can not deny.

Yaya Toure hasn't started a single league game - in fact, the 34-year-old midfielder's contribution to City's title-winning campaign has consisted of nine appearances as a second-half substitute - but that didn't matter. Now it's one more game, we'll try for 100 points and finish this nearly ideal season.

Champions Manchester City gave their departing midfield colossus Yaya Toure the ideal Etihad send-off by returning to record-breaking mode with a 3-1 rout of Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.

"You have to make more years to do that but one season we were better than all of them".

But he was also in no rush to look beyond next season in terms of pledging where his future lies and declined the opportunity to answer directly when asked if he would definitely sign a new deal.

Club captain Vincent Kompany also paid tribute to his old friend who will go down in City folklore for his victor against United in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final and Stoke in the final that ended the club's 35-year wait for a trophy. David Silva and Raheem Sterling are also in double figures meaning they are the first team ever with four players at that mark. "We will try to play for him and win for him", the City boss said. I said I am going to show you the way.

"He's not leaving because he'll always be part of it", Guardiola said.

Leroy Sane is set for new contract talks at Manchester City. In football one more year is a lot and we're going to talk to the club.
