After being linked with any exit for much of the summer, it looks like Yaya Touré will stay at Manchester City for the time being.
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has confirmed that his star forward Bojan Krkic is all set to return from a long spell on the sidelines.
The former Barcelona forward was a star signing for the club last summer. He was expected to take a long time to accommodate to the physical style of English football, but it happened much sooner than expected. Just when it seemed that Bojan Krkic was set to take the league by storm, a long-term injury sidelined him for much of the 2014-15 season.

Mark Hughes says that he expects star striker Bojan Krkic to return to first-team action by the start of next season.
The Stoke City forward was extremely unlikely to get a cruciate ligament injury at a time when he was just starting to find his feet at the club. The former Barcelona man was widely expected to struggle when it was announced that he was going to play for Stoke City – a team known for its physical style of football. Even though Hughes has been trying to change this aspect about the club, it largely remains a work in progress.

It took him a couple of months to get his game going, but just prior to being injured back towards the end of January he had scored three goals in five games.
BojanKrkic made his way past the youth academy of Barcelona in blazing form as the Spanish footballer is believed to have scored over 900 goals during his time in the youth division of the club and this was why he was promoted to the main team at the age of 17.
The manager of Stoke City, Mark Hughes is confident that one of his latest signings Bojan Krkic will turn into a star at the Britannia Stadium but the Spanish forward has struggled trying to make an impact with his new team after having played in a number of Premier League matches and friendly matches for Stoke City but he failed on having any kind of influence or impact with his new team and it wasn’t until Stoke City’s latest Premier League match that Bojan started to display a glimpse of brilliance as he scored the opening goal of the game after running past a number of players of Totte
