‘I don’t need to enter any ambiguous games, I put the letters on the table.
‘It’s my eighth season with Madrid and I have an incredible relationship with the club and I would never endanger that. I think that is something mutual.
‘I have said with clarity that I want to end my career here and that could happen.’
