Chelsea ace Ramires denies Real Madrid talk

Ramires has made it clear that he wants to remain with Chelsea despite links with Real Madrid.

It has been suggested that the Brazilian midfielder could soon be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu but he has insisted that he plans to see out the five-year deal he signed with the Blues last year.

"Nothing has come to me, I have just heard about this through the press," he told Globo Esporte.

"My agent hasn't told me anything either. Maybe it is just speculation.

"I am focused on my work, one can't talk about something that he knows nothing about.

"It's good for the ego (to be linked with Real), it's a sign that people somewhere like your work.

"I am very happy to know that, but neither Chelsea nor my agent have told me anything. It would be a lack of respect to say anything if the club didn't talk with me.

"I am under contract until 2017 and I don't want to leave while there isn't anything happening and I am happy in the team.

"I will only leave if the club want me to. I feel have adapted well."
