Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano has a host of top clubs chasing his signature.
He said: "My family are scared and thinking about not staying in Seville. I'm speaking to them to see if they change their minds, but it's not easy."
Sevilla rebuffed enquiries from City in January but Fabiano's valuation is expected to drop to £7million due to a wrangle over his ownership.
He said: "I'll see what Sevilla have in mind. We spoke once and didn't arrive at any agreement. Things aren't going very well."
