Chelsea midfielder Ramires has insisted that he is not interested in leaving the club despite being aware of interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Brazil international has been linked with a possible move to the Bernebeu as part of a swap deal that would see Sami Khedira make the move to Stamford Bridge.

Khedira is said to be unhappy with life in Madrid and it keen to be reunited with former boss Jose Mourinho who he enjoyed a close relationship with in Spain.

While Ramires is happy that his impressive performances have caught the eye of Madrid he insists that he is purely focused on producing for Chelsea and helping the west London club compete for major honours.

"I see the interest of Real Madrid as a recognition of my good work in Europe, but I'm under contract with Chelsea and it would be unethical for me to comment (on their interest). For the moment, these are only rumours," Ramires told the Evening Standard.

"I am very happy here. I am respected and part of the club's history. If I leave, Chelsea would have to make the decision. Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have realised my dream here.

"My goals are never personal, but collective. I want to continue to play football and help my team win titles. Collective success makes me stronger individually.

"Mourinho is a very decent coach. He is doing an excellent job. He manages to motivate his players and offers a chance to everyone. I have evolved since his arrival. I hope to continue to help and doing what he expects of me."

The 26-year-old recently put pen-to-paper on a new five year contract and has become a firm favourite of Mourinho. His energetic performances have made him one of the first names on the teamsheet and he was instrumental in helping Chelsea earn a late penalty in the 2-2 draw with West Brom.

Chelsea have yet to show their best form in the league but Ramires is confident that the side can challenge for title on multiple fronts this season.

"The Premier League is one of the toughest competitions in the world, but we have the means to win," he added.

"Our team is very strong and we can win it all this season. Winning the Champions League (with Chelsea in 2012) was one of the greatest moments of my career. I think the only title that can compete with that is the World Cup in Brazil."
