Gerard Pique insists he does not want to return to Spain for a season on loan at Real Zaragoza.
The Manchester United teenager has been linked with a temporary switch home to build up his first-team experience.
Pique made just seven senior appearances for United last season, but is tipped for a bright future at Old Trafford.
However, Zaragoza had expressed an interest in signing the 19-year-old on a season-long loan to help with his progress.
United are well-stocked in the defensive department and it was thought a loan arrangement could be beneficial to both clubs.
Former Barcelona youngster Pique, though, is happy in England and has no plans to join Zaragoza, or another Spanish club, on loan.
"I want to continue in England," Pique told Sport.
"I do not think about changing my situation. I am very well there.
"Why would you want to change when you are well?"
