Following their FA Cup fourth-round exit at the hands of Middlesbrough last month, City do not have a fixture this weekend and are back in action against Newcastle United on February 21 before facing Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie three days later.
City remain seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after Wednesday night’s 4-1 victory over Stoke City – their only win in Toure’s six-game absence.
Wilfried Bony is also set to begin training with City for the first time since his €35 million move from Swansea City in January.
