Vincent Kompany has boosted Manchester City by pledging his future to the club as he looks to help them retain the Premier League title next season.
The 28-year-old central defender was an influential figure in the heart of Manuel Pellegrini’s defence last season as the Citizens secured their second league title in the space of three years.
Kompany has confirmed that Spanish giants Barcelona have previously tried to sign him during his time at the Etihad Stadium, but claims there has been no recent interest in acquiring his services.
Indeed, Kompany, who signed from Anderlecht six years ago and still has four years remaining on his current City deal, has no plans to leave the club in the near future.
“I have a current contract with Manchester City, I am very comfortable,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“We have won the Premier League, we have a serious and attractive project. It is not in my plans to leave the team.”
Kompany is currently looking to skipper Belgium to World Cup success in Brazil with his side already assured of a place in the last-16 after Group H wins against Algeria and Russia.
They are 1.81 to win their final match against South Korea on Thursday while their opponents are 4.43 to secure the win they need to have any chance of qualifying.
