Sergio Aguero insisted he has no desire to leave Manchester City despite links with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Carlo Ancelotti offered Spanish playmaker Isco plus cash in an attempt to convince Manuel Pellegrini to part ways with the Argentinian striker.
Pellegrini was keen to sign Isco from his former club Malaga before he opted to join Real and the chance to finally bring him to the Etihad Stadium could have proved a tempting offer for the Chilean.
As well as interest from the Bernabeu, there had been reports in Spain that Lionel Messi had told Barcelona to go and sign hi compatriot, labelling him as the best possible partner to supplement his style of play at the Nou Camp.
However, Aguero, who has scored 13 goals in all competitions for the Citizens this season, insists he has no intention of returning to Spain, where he originally made his name with Atletico Madrid.
"The truth is that I'm happy," Aguero told the Daily Mirror. "The club treats me very well. It's very calm - it's different to being in Spain or Argentina.
"I've always said that in every match, watching or training, you learn things. It's like in any job, you know what to do or not to do.
"The same happens on the pitch. You think where you have to attack, where you feel comfortable inside the area. It's like you read where you can make the centre-backs feel uncomfortable.
"You're always improving. English football, for example, being so fast, it allows you
to develop your concentration and refine your technique. So every day you're learning and I feel that I still have plenty to learn.
"The only thing I do is enjoy football, rest, be at home and then go out or walk around or eat in peace.
"For a player or anybody who is well-known, it's good not to be afraid of the madness because later, when it's time to play, it's important to have a clear head."
