Fabio Cannavaro insists his future is with Real Madrid. While his agents have floated the prospect of returning to Italy in January, Cannavaro told AS: "I am very calm, waiting to talk to the club to solve everything by the end of the year.

"Everyone knows that I want to renew my contract with Real Madrid. I do not want to leave because I'm very comfortable in this team and my family is very happy in Madrid."
