The 31-year-old got his first taste of action this term last week when he appeared against Porto in the UEFA Champions League and put in a solid display.
The custodian has found his chances of first-team action blighted by the excellent form of Iker Casillas, but insists he will continue to work hard to try and catch the eye.
"I don't know how certain the rumours are, but the interest of any club is important because it makes you feel recognised," said the former Real Valladolid player.
"That someone should remember you makes you train that bit harder.
"When you aren't playing or things aren't going well for you, you must be motivated and happy because if not, you couldn't live.
"The other day I had an opportunity and that inspires you and helps you carry on."
Cesar conceded, however, that he might leave the club during the transfer window in January, but would give it serious consideration before ending his stint at Real.
"I have always tried to talk things through, and when the moment is right we will decide," he continued.
"I am not a controversial person and I don't want to be.
"At this time there is not much possibility of planning anything because the options are complicated.
"Later this month, or in June, we will see what they have planned for us and then calmly we will take the best option."
