Guardiola, who also said he was "so happy" to hear Sir Alex Ferguson is out of intensive care, added: "I completely agree when people say to be considered one of the best or the best, we have to win more".

Toure, 34, has won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups during his eight seasons at City.

Translating those wins into three points per game, Bob Paisley's side would have earned 98 points across 42 games, compared to City's 100 from a 38-game campaign should they win at St Mary's.

City's final game of the season is away at Southampton on Sunday - but the Ivorian will not feature.

Sane inspired City to a 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday as Guardiola's men reached 97 points - a Premier League record.

"Now it's one more game (away against Southampton on Sunday), we're going to try for 100 points and finish this nearly flawless season in the Premier League".

"His behaviour was good, we have no complaints over what happened this season".

After the game, he was presented with a commemorative shirt on the pitch, and was joined by older brother Kolo.

"They are friends of mine-Ferran, Txiki, Khaldoon-and we have time to talk fluently about what is best for the club and us". "We will try to play for him and win for him", the City boss said.

"I suppose him and (David) Silva instantly come to mind that have been through a longer period and seen the real progress of this football team".

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

An Etihad source said: "Leroy loves it here and wants to stay but it looks like it's all going to have to wait for now". City captain Vincent Kompany made a point of getting Toure to hold one handle of the trophy as it was lifted to the backdrop of fireworks, flames and tickertape.

Guardiola has made his home in Manchester City centre and has become a prominent figure in the area in his near two years in residence.
