Cannavaro wants Real stay
Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro insists he wants to remain at the Bernabeu, claiming his first priority is to extend his contract.
Cannavaro's contract is set to expire next year and speculation is rife that the Italy captain could return to his homeland.
Italian sports daily Corriere dello Sport reported earlier this week that Milan are preparing a bid for the 35-year-old, but the man himself insists he is happy to remain in the Spanish capital.
"I didn't read anything of that," Cannavaro told Spanish sports daily AS.
"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 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 teammates want me."
Cannavaro has also been heavily linked with a return to his hometown club Napoli in the winter, a move the Italians have admitted they would love to complete but which they feel Real would not agree too.
And, while the World Cup winner maintains he wants to remain at Madrid, he has not totally ruled out a move back to Italy.
"I think that I will stay at Madrid but it's clear that anything can happen in football," added Cannavaro.
"For example, Roberto Carlos who played here for 11 years left Real Madrid."
