Everton will not consider offers for Ross Barkley.
Reports over the weekend have suggested City are eyeing up a Â£25million bid for Barkley which would also include former Blues midfielder Rodwell.
Barkleyâ€™s stock has risen during the last few months after an impressive end to the season at Everton was followed by his performances being a rare high point of Englandâ€™s dismal World Cup campaign in Brazil.
The Blues have no intention of parting with the 20-year-old, with the club working towards the youngster penning an improved new contract this summer as reward for his progress.
