I don`t see myself playing for Barcelona: Javi Martinez

Barcelona: Javi Martinez has all but ruled out a move away from Athletic Bilbao this summer, as he doesn`t see himself wearing the Barcelona jersey next season.

The Spain international has been linked with a move to the Blaugrana in the past few weeks, while also catching the attention of Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Nevertheless, the 23-year-old has stressed that he is happy to see out his current contract with the Basque side.

"I don`t see myself playing for Barcelona. I am very happy at Athletic. I have a contract until 2016 and the truth is that I see myself at Athletic [until then]," he stated to Antena 3.

"I`ve read a lot of things in the newspapers, but not everything that`s being said is true. If we were to believe all the rumours, I`d have signed for seven different teams already."

Martinez has made over 200 Primera Division appearances for Athletic since making his official debut in 2006-07.
