Manchester United and Chelsea target Luka Modric has revealed he is happy at Real Madrid, reports the Daily Star.

The former Tottenham man was linked with a return to the Premier League in the summer after he struggled to settle into life at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However the Croatian playmaker has featured in all of Real Madrid's games so far this season, as Carlo Ancelotti sees the midfielder as a key part of his plans.

Modric, who moved to Real Madrid from Tottenham for £33m in August 2012, has brushed off talk of a move away from the La Liga giants, by admitting he is 'content' at Madrid.

“I’m playing well because I am happy and I am content,” he said.

“I was happy in England and it showed in my game. Now I am in Madrid and it also shows.”

News of Modric's desire to stay at Madrid will dent Manchester United manager David Moyes' hopes of signing the 28-year-old.

The Red Devils boss is said to be keen on bolstering his midfield options and Modric was reportedly one of Moyes' top summer targets.

Chelsea manager Mourinho, who signed Modric while at Real Madrid, is also a big admirer of the Croatian international.
