Defender going nowhere this summer.
Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has refuted claims that he’ll be leaving the club this summer, according to The Express.
The Belgian skipper signed a six year deal last summer but after a turbulent season rumours of his departure have been doing the rounds with Barcelona reportedly keen on bringing in the 27-year-old as a replacement for veteran Carles Puyol.
However, Kompany has put an end to those rumours by declaring that his future is with City and that he can’t wait to help the club win back the title from Manchester United.
“I have no reason to go elsewhere. I am happy here, I have five years left and if you knew the plans for this team for the future. I consider that to be a real objective, he said.
Kompany has made just 22 appearances in all competitions this season thanks to a recurring knee injury, but that hasn’t stopped him looking forward to leading the side out for the FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic next month.
He also reiterated the club’s desire to be more competitive in the Champions League next term after a disappointing campaign this time around.
“We will win the Champions League one day. It is inevitable. The same question arose concerning the Premier League and we did it,” he said, “With the investment being made in all areas of the club, that will surely come. When we see people like [Patrick] Vieira it’s one of the things that can help us move forward. In Europe, we will be more competitive.”
