Rosell says the Barclays Premier League champions have not only tried to sign players from all levels of the club's structure, but also other employees of the Catalan giants.

Former Barcelona directors Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain are now at City as chief executive and director of football respectively.

Rosell, speaking to RAC1 and quoted in Marca, said: "There have been some offensive approaches from City, at all levels of the structure of the club, but no one wants to go.

"They wanted to fish here, but there were no fish left."
