Cape Town - Yaya Toure's agent says the Manchester City midfielder has received interesting offers to ply his trade elsewhere next season.
Zabaleta has become a cult hero at City since he joined from Espanyol in 2008, making more than 332 appearances for the club and winning two Premier League titles.
So, for the moment, it's only Zabaleta who can really bid City farewell.
The Foxes also had a late penalty disallowed, as Riyad Mahrez slipped during the attempt and sent a shot that deflected off his plant foot into the Manchester City net.
They do, however, still have work to do in order to secure a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, with Arsenal sat just three points behind them in fifth with two games to go. He is is the third player to have made the most appearances in the current squad, behind Joe Hart and Vincent Kompany.
A 2-1 success over Leicester on Saturday ensured two more victories, against West Bromwich Albion and Watford, will guarantee them a place in Europe's elite club competition.
"He wants to play in the Champions League next season but he would also play for an ambitious club who have big plans - a club who have a project".
"His impact here was awesome". Nine years he has been here. "To be like Pablo, first you have to be that personality and you have to be a long time here".
Guardiola now faces the challenge of replacing a player whose leadership has been a defining influence behind the scenes whether he has been in the first XI or not. What he and other guys did for the club, helped (make) this club what it is right now. It will probably be my last game in a City shirt in front of the fans.
Guardiola, meanwhile, remained guarded on the fate of the six out-of-contract players whose futures all remain unclear.
Willy Caballero, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Jesus Navas are expected to be part of the summer clear out by Guardiola, but time will tell if they all go and whether or not Toure will be joining them.
Senior City sources said there is a "strong chance" he will be offered a contract extension.
"It's a huge result for us", said Swansea manager Paul Clement. "I know you are curious but now it is important to stay in the present".
"We play for a lot of things, and it will be a real final for us".
"Hopefully, the players are focused on that".style="text-align: center;"
