Real Madrid defender Pepe has played down the prospect of moving away this month.

Pepe is a top target for Manchester City.

"I have a contract signed for three years. I want to be with my team, to train and give my all in every match and training session," said Pepe.

"It's good. I'm happy for (Raphael) Varane because he's humble and he likes to learn. Last year I injured my ankle, I had an operation and I recovered, but he was in good shape and deserved to play. I've always said that I don't consider myself a player in the main team. I work humbly and I want to earn a place in this team."
