Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is not paying attention to reports linking him with a multi-million pound move to Real Madrid.

The Belgium international has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining an ankle injury at the beginning of March, but that has not stopped suggestions that Real are preparing a summer bid.

It has been reported by Spanish newspaper AS that Real are ready to offer €25million (£21.7m) in a bid to improve their squad and close the gap on Pep Guardiola's Barcelona.

Fellaini had been excellent for Everton since the turn of the year, providing a strong presence in midfield, and, amid the transfer rumours, he is adamant that his only priority is to return to first-team football.

The 23-year-old told skysports.com: "I am nursing my ankle injury. I want to come back stronger from this injury next season.

"I am not thinking about a transfer at the moment. I am thinking about getting fit. It has been a difficult year so far for me."
