Giovani Dos Santos has stated that he has never considered leaving Barcelona amid fresh rumours that Manchester City could be set to make a move in the summer.

The Mexican starlet has been linked to various clubs since being promoted to the Blaugrana first team, but he has rejected any notion that he wants to go.

"I cannot avoid rumours about me going to the Premier League or to any other place," Dos Santos told a press conference.

"I just live in the present. I am here now and what I would like most is to be here next season and for many more years after that if it is possible.

"It has never entered my head to leave Barcelona."
