Adil Rami has insisted that AC Milan was the only club he wanted to join this summer.
The 28-year-old joined Milan on loan in January following a falling-out with Valencia, and immediately became a regular at the heart of the defense during his six-month spell, making 18 appearances and scoring three times in Serie A.
He made the switch permanent in July, joining Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi's new regime for a reported fee of 4.25 million euros.

Speaking to Calcio 2000, Rami claims he had no hesitation over returning to the "family" at San Siro.
"I had problems with Valencia and I heard that Milan were looking for a defender," said the Frenchman. "I didn't know about any other clubs that may have been interested. For me, I just wanted to sign for Milan – and that's what happened.
"[Philippe] Mexes helped me in the early days, but I have to say that everyone has been really helpful. I found more than just a team here – it's a family."
