Former Liverpool and current Fenerbahce centre-back Martin Skrtel rejected Barcelona in January according to his representatives.

Mithat Halis, who is part of the group who represents the defender, says Skrtel is happy in Istanbul and did not want to sit behind Barcelona's current centre-backs. 

"Barcelona wanted to sign him and were insisting on him because they needed a central defender that was a reliable alternative, but the player didn't agree because he did not want to be a substitute for Pique and Umtiti," Halis said.
