Guardiola speaks on Yaya Toure's future at Manchester City

The goalkeeper featured in Wednesday night's 4-0 Champions League triumph at Feyenoord but sported protective headwear.

Interest from Real could prompt City to offer Diaz improved terms on the deal he signed last season.

"Of course, the clubs with huge talented players, like City, make the effort to keep them with the salary".

Guardiola, speaking at his pre-match press conference, was also vague on the prospect of veteran midfielder Yaya Toure being involved.

Asked if that meant Toure would get his first minutes at Vicarage Road, Guardiola said: "We will see".

MANCHESTER CITY have released their third kit for the 2017/18 season.

Guardiola, however, did go on to add that Toure remains an important member of the squad and will have a key role to play this season.

City managed to tie down 19-year-old centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo to a new contract this summer, but lost Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund despite offering him a £30,000-per-week professional contract.

But Guardiola, whose side travel to Watford on Saturday, has been quick to knock back any idea of a fall-out, and says the Ivorian will be a key figure for his team this season.

"He is part of the group".

"What he's done in his career, he's an exceptional player".

With Gundogan still recovering from a torn cruciate knee ligament problem, it leaves City with only Fernandinho and Fabian Delph in central midfield positions without Toure.

Guardiola is aware he will have to use the full extent of his squad as fixtures come thick and fast. "Every three days until the next worldwide break - there are many, many games to play".

"All the teams that play in Europe have a lot of games", he said.
