Bayern Munich defender Van Buyten does not regret missing Man City move
He played six times for City on loan from Marseille in 2004.
"I am very happy at Bayern. I am living probably the best moment in my career here," he said.
"City have changed since I left - they want to win titles. There are no players there from my time. It's a new project with ambition. The atmosphere in the stadium will be hot but, for Bayern, there is nothing to fear.
