Zabaleta's departure after nine years was confirmed on Saturday evening after the fan favourite decided not to seek a new deal at the end of the campaign, and the club will mark his service, following the final home game of the season against West Brom, with video montages, tributes and a post-match presentation.
Tomorrow's game against West Bromwich Albion at Etihad Stadium, therefore, is the Argentine's last chance to say goodbye to the club's home fans.
"After next Sunday, we will start talking with individuals", the Spaniard said.
Zabaleta arrived at City from Espanyol in 2008, having played as a midfielder for much of his career.More news: Blind desperate for Manchester United stay
City failed to mount a sustained Premier League title challenge and saw their campaign in the Champions League ended at the last-16 stage. It doesn't matter if he's going for the ball because I can't see it. It's a frustrating thing to talk about because we can't get involved in the debate.

Pep Guardiola says Gabriel Jesus has plenty to improve on and feels his open-mindedness will allow him to thrive at City.
City will have John Stones back in the squad for the game but Fabian Delph's season looks like it is over after picking up a knock in training. But the way they have been playing this season they have been so consistent.
It's widely considered to be the most iconic moment since the English top flight was rebranded in 1992 and Silva, who was a key player as City won their first title in 44 years, says it was an "unforgettable" occasion. I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson called us the "noisy neighbours" and this is something that I have made sure I have been since that time!
City edged the win that strengthens their hopes of third place and automatic qualification for the Champions League thanks to referee Robert Madley's controversial decision to disallow Riyah Mahrez's "two-touch" penalty which would have given Leicester a deserved equaliser. "I am very happy and proud to have been part of this football club".
