Chelsea midfielder Ramires dismisses speculation linking him with a January move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has played down speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

It was claimed at the start of the month that the Spanish giants were preparing a £15m bid for the Brazilian during the January transfer window.

However, the 26-year-old admits that he has not been approached over a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"Nothing has come to me, I have just heard about this through the press," Ramires told Globo Esporte. "My agent hasn't told me anything either. Maybe it is just speculation.

"I am under contract until 2017 and I don't want to leave while there isn't anything happening and I am happy in the team."

Ramires joined Chelsea from Benfica in 2010 for around £18m.
