Michael Essien insists his long-term future is with Chelsea.

Essien has attracted interest from Real Madrid, but he said: "The whole world will be watching so it's going to be a really exciting game.

"I have no regrets at all. My dream was to come to England and play in the Premier League so I was very happy when Chelsea came in for me.

"I'm really enjoying my football. I love the club and the fans and, hopefully, I can stay a long time."
