Yaya Toure's camp claim they are yet to hear from Manchester City amid reports the midfielder is set to be offered a new contract.
"When I first came to Manchester I felt like when I was in Barcelona at Espanyol, we were not the main club in the city - we can't say the same thing now", Zabaleta said.

"Here they gave me a second chance and we will try to do it". We play for a lot of important things, so they have to come to support us more than ever and to express the gratitude to one of the most important players in the whole history of Manchester City.
It also promises to be an emotional night with City fans saying farewell to cult hero Pablo Zabaleta on his last appearance at the Etihad Stadium.
