James Rodriguez has vowed to stay at Porto after downplaying the possibility of joining Manchester United.
Colombia international Rodriguez has persistently been linked with the English Premier League club after impressing since his 5 million-euro switch to Portuguese champions Porto in 2010.
However, the 21-year-old claims an exit from the Estadio do Dragao is not on the agenda as he is about to enter his third season at the club.
“I want to stay here, Porto are a big club and they are my present,” he said.
“My only thought is playing for Porto and I am also thinking about what is best for the club.”
Rodriguez also had words of praise for fellow countryman Jackson Martinez, who earned an 8.9 million-euro transfer to Porto last week, having impressed at Mexican side Jaguares.
“He is an excellent player, a great goal scorer,” he said.
“I hope that he will have a good season.
“Comparisons with Radamel Falcao? They are different players,” he said, referring to the Atletico Madrid man.
