 While there isn't any proposal there is nothing to think about. I am very comfortable where I am, I am under contract for three more years and I am very happy. No offer has arrived, so I can't start to think that my future will be in another shirt when I have a contract with my current team and nobody has sent any proposal.

 I don't know anything of an interest from other teams. It's another summer full of rumours and there isn't any official proposal, so the only thing that I know is what is said by the press. Nobody has approached me with a proposal so I don't see myself leaving Atletico Madrid at the moment.
