Maxi Rodriguez insists he wants to stay with Atletico Madrid.
The Argentina winger admits he wants to close his career with hometown club Newell's Old Boys, but that is still some way into the future.
Maxi said: "I would like to finish my career at home, where I started, but now I want to think about only Atletico. I still have one year on my contract and I think only of doing well with the red and white jersey.
"We're aiming high, but to do so the strongest players need to be confirmed. I am proud to wear the captain's armband of this club.
"Real Madrid? They've strengthened a lot, but next year we'll win ..."
