Nuri Sahin insists he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid despite playing just 642 minutes for the club in his debut season.
Sahin, 23, joined Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer but has been tipped to leave the Bernabeu this summer, with Galatasaray reportedly keen to sign him.
However, the Turkey midfielder remains determined to prove himself in Spain and has ruled out a move to his homeland.
"I will not return to Turkey," he told the AS newspaper. "My dream is still Madrid. I was on the list of players who disappointed last season and I know the Madrid fans expect more from me, but I can do better if I do not have any injuries.
"I will always strive to be a better player for this team."
