Chelsea midfielder Ramires has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona. 

The Brazilian ace joined Chelsea from Benfica in 2010 in a deal said to be worth €22 million, and has established himself as a first-team regular under Jose Mourinho.

Despite that, stories continue to circulate that he is being targeted by Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Ramires insists he doesn't pay attention to newspaper speculation, and insists he is focused on giving his all for Chelsea.

Many people are asking about the supposed interest from other clubs in my football but I don't know anything, apart from what was reported in press," he told Lancenet.

"I am under contract with Chelsea and my attention resides solely in keeping on doing the good job done at the club."

The energetic Chelsea midfielder has been busy during the international break, appearing in both of Brazil's wins against Honduras and Chile in the past week.

Ramires says he is happy that his country are building momentum ahead of the World Cup on home soil next year.

"It's always better to win and thank God I returned home with another fulfilled goal," explained the 26-year-old.

"We are in the final stretch for the World Cup so whenever I had the chance to play I try to always do my best so I can assure my place in the squad for this competition, which is the most important one in Brazil's national team history.

"We played our last friendly of the year and now I am focusing again on Chelsea until the next national team call-ups."

Chelsea face West Ham when the Premier League resumes this weekend.
