The 26-year-old told Marca: "I am very clear that I want to stay here.
"Leaving here has not crossed my mind. I want it to be resolved as soon as possible.
"I'm happy here. I want to be here for all the years I have left as a professional.
"If it was solely down to me, I would have signed my contract with Atletico.
"It's what I want, but there are contract matters.
"I did everything possible to come here and I will do my best to stay."
