Barcelona keen on Manchester City star
The La Liga leaders want the sign the City captain to replace club legend Carlos Puyol who is coming to the end of his illustrious career at the Nou Camp.
The 26 year old Belgian defender has arguably been City’s best player over the past two years, but a possible season without any silverware will have affected morale in the camp.
It would take an astronomical bid from Barcelona to lure City into any negotiations and it is unlikely that Kompany would force through a move away from the Etihad.
Chelsea’s hit and miss centre back David Luiz is also on the shortlist to replace Puyol at the Catalan club and the Brazilian stopper may be available after a slow season in the Premier League that has seen him fall down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
