Sergio Ramos has dismissed reports linking him with an exit from Real Madrid, insisting his relationship with the club remains healthy.
The Spanish international was reported to have fallen out for Real Madrid president Florentino Perez over a wage dispute and was ready to leave the Bernabeu.
Manchester City and Chelsea were both rumoured to be ready to take the player off Real Madrid's hands.
With both Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini backed by their billionaire owners, it was reported that both were willing to meet the player's £41m release clause.
But it seems that Ramos has no interest in a move to Stamford Bridge or the Etihad and insists he is happy at the club.
The 27-year-old even went as far to say that he would like to see out his playing days at Real Madrid.
"I’ll repeat, our differences were nothing to do with the contract. I’ve got three years here and I’m relaxed and I’m not looking to leave," the defender was quoted as saying by AS.
"I feel privileged and if I could, I would retire here.
Ramos did, however, refuse to rule out reports that there is a disagreement between him at the club.
"I’m not going to talk about the differences between us because it’s a personal matter," he continued, "but I can say we have a great relationship. I’ll never forget who the president here is and I know he’s in charge."
