He said: "Real's interest changes nothing for me. I want to challenge myself in the Juventus jersey. This summer, after everything that happened last season, it would be easy to demand a transfer.
"I didn't do that because I want to do well with Juve. I got the feeling myself, Diego and Felipe Melo were criticised too much, as we didn't deserve to be singled out that way.
"Things have changed this season, as there is a new atmosphere at Juventus. We can do something great and have the champions to succeed."
