Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he is happy at Real Madrid quashing all rumors surrounding his move to French Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain or to England.
The Portuguese international went on to claim that he enjoys playing at Real and it's not just the money that appeals him.
"I play for the passion I have for football and for the love of the teams I represent," The 27-year-old forward told France Football. "If I played for money, I would be at another club."

"All players love it when teams like Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Chelsea are linked to them. Moving is not something I am thinking about though. I am happy at Real Madrid and I want to stay here and win things."
"What happens in the future is in the lap of the Gods. In life anything is possible and nothing is impossible, but for now I am not thinking about another club or a new contract."
The Santiago Bernabeu superstar has been linked to various clubs recently including English Premier League clubs Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
However, PSG have denied that they are planning a move for Ronaldo.
It was reported by La Gazzetta Dello Sport that PSG were considering the Portuguese forward and Real boss Jose Mourinho in the January transfer window.
However, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi denied the reports.
"I haven't talked with anyone from Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player, but a Real Madrid player," Al-Khelaifi told the Italian daily.
PSG sporting director Leonardo added: "Look, we haven't met anyone. As you know, at this moment we can't talk about the transfer market. This is not the time to think about the transfer market. Let's talk about the good things we have done on the pitch so far."
"This is a key moment of the season. In Ligue 1 we've done well, we have to play in Champions League and in the national cups. If we keep doing like that, we can achieve something important."
Coach Carlo Ancelotti, meanwhile, refused to be drawn on the subject, saying: "I don't really know what to say. They are just rumors."
However, PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Carmine Raiola has been quoted as saying that Ronaldo's move to PSG was still very likely.
Ronaldo moved from Manchester United to Madrid in 2009 and has been in prolific form throughout his career. In 2008, he won the Ballon d'Or and is currently leading the race for the top scorer's award alongside Barcelona's Argentine star Lionel Messi.
