The talented stopper has been continually linked with a é¼15 summer move, with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea reportedly all ready to entice the player from Die Bundesliga.
However, Lucio has now declared his intentions to remain at the BayArena until the completion of his contract.
''First of all I want to finish the season with Leverkusen and travel back home for my holidays,'' said Lucio.
''Then I will return to Leverkusen, where I want to fulfil my contract.''
The player's agent, Sandro Becker, confirmed that were no bids imminent from any of Europe's super-powers.
''After the 2002 World Cup, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona were definitely interested, but at the moment there is no concrete offer for him,'' confirmed Becker.
