Cannavaro snubs transfer rumours

Sunday, December 28, 2008

Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro has ruled out an imminent move back to Italy, claiming his first priority is to extend his contract.

Italian sports daily Corriere dello Sport reported earlier this week that AC Milan are preparing a bid for the Italy captain as his current contract with Real is set to expire next summer.

However, Cannavaro, who has also been heavily linked with a return to his hometown club Napoli, insists he is committed to the Spanish champions.

He told Spanish sports daily AS: "AC Milan? I didn't read anything of that.

"At the moment I'm concentrating on taking advantage of the holiday with my family and I have on thing that's clear: I'm only thinking about Madrid and I feel like a Madridista.

"The first thing I am going to do is talk with Madrid because I have already said many times that staying here is my first choice.

"At the moment I don't want to talk about Milan nor about any other club.

"Recently it hasn't been a good time to talk about renewing. Everyone has to know that first comes the team and then personnel.

"When January comes we'll talk with Madrid with more intensity. I'm not in a rush because I know that the club and my team-mates want me.

"I think that I will stay at Madrid but it's clear that anything can happen in football.

"For example, Roberto Carlos who played here for 11 years left Real Madrid."
