Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has pledged his future to Real Madrid after some impressive performances at the European Under 21 Championships.

The 20-year old scored four goals at the tournament in Israel, which earned him the Golden Boot.

The striker had been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu after limited first-team opportunities last season but Morata has insisted he will stay at Los Blancos.

"I called the president and he told me that I will stay at Real Madrid next season. He is very happy with me," Morata told Cadena SER.

He helped Spain win the tournament as they impressively brushed past opponents Italy 4-2 in the final. Many young Spanish players shone and Morata had admitted he is attempting to persuade them to join him at Madrid.

"I am trying to convince Isco to come," he said. "It seems Thiago has received bids, and they are enough to make him consider leaving (Barca)."

Isco is a transfer target for many European giants including Manchester City but Morata is doing him best to make the youngster swap Malaga for Madrid.

Thiago Alcantara was the hero for the Spanish youngsters as he scored a hat-trick in the final. The midfielder from Barcelona had revealed he is happy to leave and has attracted interest from Manchester United amongst other.

Madrid fans will be happy with the strikers commitment to the club and will be delighted if he manages to persuade more young Spanish talent to join Madrid.
