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

The Ivory Coast ace looked certain to be heading for the exit door after falling out of favour with the City boss when he first arrived last summer, but has since managed to turn things around at the Etihad Stadium.

Zabaleta, one of the most popular players in City's history, has announced he is leaving as a free agent after nine years with the club and is set to join West Ham.

He helped us with his team-mates, with the club, to make a step forward, to try to qualify for the Champions League, to win the Premier League, to be in Europe three or four times in a row when it was never in Europe for 30 years. "At the end of his contract, we will look at the offers he has".

Zabaleta has won two league titles with City, as well as the FA Cup once, in 2011, and the League Cup twice. That is a long time and it is not easy.

'I'm sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.

Yaya Toure's City contract runs out in six weeks and there have been reports that he will be offered a new deal.

Aguero, who made the squad after recovering from a groin injury, did come on for the last 12 minutes, but Gabriel Jesus, signed in January from Palmeiras, is clearly the first-choice striker.

"His impact here was wonderful, he was one of the first players to come here, he has helped the club to where it is right now", Guardiola added.
