Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has admitted he was unhappy at Santiago Bernabeu but insisted all issues have been resolved – ending Chelsea’s hopes of signing him.


The Stamford Bridge club were linked with a £40million January bid for the Spain international earlier this week, after reports of a falling out between him and Los Blancos boss Jose Mourinho.


Ramos’ latest comments appear to put any chance of a Chelsea move to bed and Roberto di Matteo will have to look elsewhere if he wishes to strengthen his defence in the January transfer market.


“The topic is settled. I am happy again and I am very pleased to be back in the starting line-up,” he is reported as saying on the talkSPORT website.


The falling out reportedly stemmed from Mourinho’s decision to leave Ramos out of the starting line-up for los Merengues’ Champions League group stage clash with Premier League champions Manchester City and Spanish press claimed his agents had told Real they were open to a move if Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made a bid.


The 26-year-old has been reinstated in the starting XI since then and now appears to be happy with things in Madrid once more.


Ramos was in the line-up as Real mauled Ajax 4-1 in Amsterdam on Wednesday and is expected to remain there for the Barcelona this weekend – it will be the first La Liga Clasico of the season.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will have their own defensive issues to worry about soon, with Stamford Bridge captain John Terry facing a four-game suspension after being found guilty of using racially abusive language towards QPR's Anton Ferdinand.
