Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora has admitted he is flattered to be linked with Real Madrid.
Former Spurs boss Juande Ramos recently took charge at the Bernabeu and the Spanish tactician has always spoken highly of Zokora.
The Ivory Coast midfielder does not mind the speculation as he believes Real are one of the finest clubs in the world.
However, Zokora insists he is loving life at White Hart Lane and has no plans to leave.
"It's fantastic to be associated with Real Madrid as they are one of the biggest club sides in the world - show me the player who would not want to be linked with them," he told the Daily Express.
"But I'm very happy here at Spurs and in England. I love England and the English people.
"My team is doing much better under Harry Redknapp and I am enjoying every minute of it. For me, this is a win-win situation. I cannot lose.
"I love playing for Spurs, but to be associated with Real Madrid is, of course, very flattering."
Ramos was dismissed earlier this season after a disappointing year at the Spurs helm, even though he did guide the team to Carling Cup success.
Zokora still holds Ramos in high regard, adding: "I was upset when Juande Ramos left because he gave me a chance in English football and for that I'll be forever grateful.
"I was nervous about what would happen next, but as soon as Harry came here things have just got better and better.
"Harry has a very English way whereas Ramos had a Spanish way of dealing with things.
"Both of them are very good, but we are at an English club so maybe the English way is the correct one."
