Ivory Coast international Yaya Toure has been left out of Premier League side Manchester City’s Champions League list for the 2016/2017 season.

Toure has featured in one occasion so far for Manchester City this season, which was against Steaua Bucharest in the second leg of the Champions League preliminary rounds, the game that ended 1-0 in the favour of The Citizens.

Pep Guardiola has announced his 21-man Manchester City squad that is set to take on the team’s Champions League campaign this season, with the 33-year-old omitted from the list submitted to UEFA.

This exclusion increases doubts over the Ivorian midfielder’s future at Manchester City, which was already existing ever since the former Bayern Munich manager took over as the new Manchester-based club coach earlier this summer.

It remains to be seen whether Toure will see out his contract with City which expires next summer or seek a move out of the club in January.
