Manuel Pellegrini says he has never envisaged the prospect of letting Yaya Toure quit Manchester City.

“But I am not, and I am sure nobody else in this club is talking about selling Yaya Toure.”

Toure will miss the Premier League champions’ game against Bayern Munich after getting straight red card for pushing CSKA’s Roman Eremenko in midweek.

“Maybe all those news come from other teams who want to see our team in the weakest form.”
