Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey says it's his wish to retire at Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

His current deal runs until 2023 and has caught the attention of top clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and Inter Milan.

He is however intent on staying put at the Wand Metropolitano where he has spent the bulk of his senior career bar loan spells at Mallorca and Almeria.

"I feel good, with confidence, when I am in good shape the team notices. Simeone is like a teacher, like a father to the players, it helps us a lot. Atlético is like my home, the place where I want to always be, it's like my family. I hope to stay in the club, I would like to retire here, but you never know what can happen. I want to stay here until the club doesn't love me, "Thomas said in The One Party.

On Tuesday night, the 26-year-old produced a terrific performance as Atletico Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League.
