Sources in Italy claimed that Internazionale had made a tentative approach for the central defender, and speculation was heightened when the player flew to Italy earlier in the week.
However, Samuel has rejected any implication that he is looking to leave Real, and insists he will stay with Los Merengues for as long as the club want him.
"It's useless to say anything about my future," he stated. "I belong to Real Madrid and will continue at Real Madrid until they throw me out.
"I have come to Rome only because I had two days' holiday, I have things to do here and I wanted to come and visit some old friends."
The Argentina international was purported to be unhappy with life in Madrid after a less than convincing start to his Real career which resulted in a spat with fans during last weekend's league win over Albacete.
