Manchester City's inspirational skipper Vincent Kompany says a move to Spain is not an option at the moment, having pledged his long-term future to the champions.
The 26-year-old Belgium international signed a new six-year contract with the Premier League title holders in the summer and says he has no desire to try his luck in La Liga for the time being.
I am convinced that I can win just as many honours with City as I could with Barcelona or Real Madrid.Vincent Kompany
Kompany moved to England from Hamburg in the summer of 2008 and led his side to FA Cup glory in May 2011, before being a key figure in a first league title success since 1968 last term.
The central defender told The Sun: "It would take me time at another club to reach the level I have achieved with City. Even then there would be no guarantee I could do it.
"I am convinced that I can win just as many honours with City as I could with Barcelona or Real Madrid.
"Whoever goes to play for Real will be in Ronaldo's shadow and whoever joins Barca will be overshadowed by Messi. So I prefer to be captain of Manchester City.
"I feel very much at home here and am able to live a normal life."
City are 51.00 to retain their top-flight crown this season, while they are 10001.00 to win the Champions League for the first time in their history.
