Barcelona president Sandro Rosell says they've been fighting off the attention of Manchester City this past year.

City already boast former Barca directors Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain as part of their front office and Rosell says their push for personnel has not stopped.

"There has been an offensive from City, at all levels of the structure of the club, but no one wants to go," he revealed.

"They've wanted to fish here, but there's no fish left."
