Kompany rejects talk of Man City exit amid Barcelona interest

Vincent Kompany has no intention of quitting Manchester City for Barcelona, the Daily Mail has reported, with the captain of the now-former Premier League champions insisting he intends to honour his contract at the Etihad Stadium.

Kompany signed a six-year contract last summer but has attracted interest from the runaway La Liga leaders, with the suggestion that the Belgium international could use City’s failure to retain the title as reason to move on.

The centre-back rejected such speculation, however, saying: “I have no reason to go. I’m happy here, I have five years left and if you knew the plans for this team I consider that a real objective.

Kompany moved to City from Bundesliga club Hamburg in 2008, signed by Roberto Mancini’s predecessor Mark Hughes. Having begun his career at Anderlecht, Kompany headed for Germany in 2006 but played fewer than 50 games, switching to City at the start of the 2008/09 season.

Eventually appointed the club captain, Kompany has gone on to play almost 200 times for the Blues, winning the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League title last season. He also has more than 50 international caps to his name.
