Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol insists that he wants to remain at the club next season.

Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol has insisted that he has no desire to leave the Spanish club at the end of the season.

It had been reported that the 26-year-old would depart the Bernabeu in search of regular football, but the Spaniard has dampened suggestions.

"It is clear that I like being at Madrid and that I want to continue, but if the club do not have the same opinion, then they have to tell me this. There is still a lot left for the next season. We will see," he told reporters.

"What is clear is that I am a player of Madrid now. I was happy to see coach Jose Mourinho say that he counts on all the players for the next season."

Albiol is part of Spain's provisional squad ahead of Euro 2012.
