The Spaniard contract with City expires in the summer but he is yet to ink a new deal with the English club seems to have prepared for life without him after the summer signing of Reuben Diaz from Benfica.
The 19-year-old is a graduate of the famed La Masia Academy and is said to be interested in returning to Spain with Barcelona having enquired about his availability in the summer.
After months of negotiations in the summer, City stuck to their £22 million price tag and Barcelona refused to meet the valuation but with Ronald Koeman in the market for a defender after the injury to Gerard Pique, a move in January was said to be imminent for the player.
The Blaugrana might however have to wait for a few more months to get their player!
