Pablo Zabaleta: Will not leave Manchester City in January

Pablo Zabaleta will not consider a move away from Manchester City this month but does not expect his long-term future to be decided until the summer.

Zabaleta is widely reported to be a target for former City boss Roberto Mancini at Inter Milan, but the 31-year-old is happy at the Etihad Stadium.

He said: “At the end of this season I will have one more year left on my contract.

“Normally the end of this season will be the time to decide what we will do.

“As a player I think I still have two or three years left to play at the top level, but in football things change quickly.

“I am enjoying myself at this great club, and at the end of this season we will have a conversation.

“I want to finish the season here and am not thinking of going anywhere in January.”

Zabaleta made his 200th Premier League appearance against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but it was only his third of the season and first since October, with Bacary Sagna impressing in his absence.

Zabaleta added: “Bacary has been doing really well for the team and that is what big squads need — two players in every position.”
