Joao Moutinho insists he has no intention of leaving Porto this summer after fresh links with a move away from the club.

The Portuguese midfield star has long been linked with former boss Andre Villas Boas, who has tried to sign him for Chelsea and more recently Tottenham.

But big-spending Monaco are now reported to be lining up a move for him and team-mate James Rodriguez.

However, Moutinho is more than happy with life at Porto, where he has just won his third successive league title.

"Right now, nothing will make me change clubs. I am extremely happy here and the most important thing is happiness and winning titles," Moutinho told a press conference.

But he added: "My future is up to FC Porto. No player is immune to leaving. But if something does come up, it has to be something good for both parties."

Moutinho says Porto are determined to improve on their European performances next year.

"We want to improve the campaign from last year, we want to improve on the European level, we want to win everything you enter and it is with this in mind that we will enter the first day of the season," he said.
