Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has told agent Dimitri Seluk to end his feud with coach Pep Guardiola.
Toure, 33, helped City win two Premier League titles after joining from Barcelona in 2010, but has only made one appearance since Guardiola’s appointment in the summer.
Seluk has been outspoken in his criticism of Guardiola and claimed he had a vendetta against him.
In September, the coach said Toure would not play for City again until he received an apology for comments made by Seluk.
The agent claimed Guardiola was “humiliating a great player” by not picking him and later said he was “allowing his ego to make decisions that aren’t in the best interests of Manchester City.”
But now Toure has told Seluk to end the row, leading the agent to say he wants to establish a “new relationship” in the hope his client can return to the City squad.
“I have spoken to Yaya in the last few days and he has asked me to make the peace with Pep,” Seluk told The Mirror.
“I agreed with him that I had to do what I could to make the situation better, because Yaya and Manchester City have been caught in the crossfire.
“I am genuine in what I say. I don’t think that Pep will ever love me, but the most important thing is that we try to forgive what has happened in the past and develop a new relationship.
“This is a genuine gesture. I hope Pep accepts that my hope is that we can start with a clean page.
“Of course I hope that Pep takes the decision to bring Yaya back into his squad. But even if he doesn’t, I can assure him that I am not going to speak about him any more in the media.”
Toure’s only appearance for City in the Guardiola era came in August’s home victory over Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League qualifiers.
