Pep Guardiola revealed in August that Garcia did not want to sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, with his current deal running out at the end of the season.

Reports have mentioned Rafinha's name in a possible swap deal involving Garcia, but sources tell Goal that the midfielder has not been told anything about a move to the Etihad.

One year ago, Rafinha and Barcelona agreed that the Blaugrana would allow him to depart should they receive a bid of €16 million (£15m/$19m).
