Atletico Madrid defender Pablo Ibanez has played down reports talk linking him with a move to Juventus.

The 23-year-old central defender has attracted widespread interest across Europe in recent years and his performances in an Atletico shirt have enhanced his reputation.

Juventus are the latest club reported to be monitoring his progress, but Ibanez insists he is happy in Madrid.

“I am at a big club and am not thinking about anything but Atletico Madrid,” he said.

“I don’t even want to think about it, because it is not significant.

“Nobody has said anything to me, and for the moment it is just speculation.

“I am calm, I am at Atletico Madrid and still have a long time left on my contract.”
