Elano has warned Manchester City he's ready to quit Eastlands.
The 27-year-old said: "I had a meeting with the club's management and I asked them if - with all the players that they plans to buy - do they value me too?
"I only asked that they be straight with me. If they offer me a new contract now, I stay. If not, I intend to leave, to find another club."
Elano last night suggested there had been approaches.
"There are some things happening, but it is not the moment of speaking of that, I am here in the national team," he said.
