"I thought about going," he tells Spanish television station Canal Plus. "But in the end, at 33 years of age, you think, why should I go?

"There was a lot of talk about an offer from Arsenal, but there was nothing concrete. I want to stay at Real Madrid, keep fighting here and finish my career here."
