- Sergio Ramos has stated that he wants to retire at Real Madrid
- Florentino Perez recently revealed Ramos was leaving for China
- Man United and Liverpool have been linked with the Spaniard
Sergio Ramos have insisted that he will retire at Real Madrid despite being linked with a move to the Chinese Super Lig.
President Florentino Perez recently revealed that Los Blancos captain had asked to leave on a free transfer in the summer.
"It is true that I have an offer from China on the table, I will not lie about it," said 33-year-old Ramos, who has been at Real since 2005 and whose contract expires in 2021.
"My dream is to retire here."
Perez said Ramos and his agent told him they had received a mouth-watering offer from an unnamed club but that the club could not pay a fee.
"I told Ramos that it was impossible for Real Madrid to let their captain go for free," said Perez.
Ramos said: "At no moment did I consider going to China.
"Yesterday I went to see the president to make everything clear.
"I told the president that I would never go to a team that could compete with Real Madrid.
"If one day I go then it is because I think my body does not allow me to give a high level.
"I am the captain of Real Madrid and I feel very loved and supported by my team-mates.
"I'm not looking to renew [my contract]. I am happy with what I have. People always think it's a strategy to earn more, but it's the opposite."
