Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric insists that teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is not seeking a move in the off-season.
The Portugal captain revealed in September last year that he was ‘sad’ at Madrid which prompted a number of rumours to emerge.
Ronaldo has since stated that those issues are in the past and Modric said he feels Ronaldo will remain with the La Liga giants.
"Our conversations are private but I believe that Cristiano Ronaldo will stay, I think he's very happy here," Modric told reporters.
"He is one of our best players around and it would be a shame to lose him."
Modric went on to speak about about Real Madrid's surprising defeat away to Granada last time out was adamant his side would bounce back against Sevilla on Saturday.
"In Granada I did not play well, clearly," he said. "In every game we want to do our best but sometimes, unfortunately, we cannot always achieve this.
“The other teams give their utmost against us so it's not easy. Still, we are Real Madrid and we have to try and win every game.
"Teams are more motivated when they play against Real Madrid so we need to be at our best if we want to win. When we don't play at our best, we start to have problems.
"Against Sevilla we will show what we are capable of. Sevilla have played much better since the arrival of (coach) Unai Emery. It will be a good warm-up ahead of the Champions League."
