Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner believes he will eventually end up playing for either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old, who has not played regular first-team football for Arsenal since the 2010/11 campaign, has never lacked self-confidence.

And when asked by the Danish media how he envisages his career to continue, Bendtner reportedly responded: "Real Madrid or Barcelona," according to the Mail on Sunday.

The Denmark international, who has played 32 minutes of Premier League football for the Gunners this season, added that he would not leave the Emirates Stadium purely for financial reasons.

"It is the sport that is the most important," he continued. "I'm going somewhere where I know I can be happy to play. With a team where I can score goals and preferably to win something.

"I do not want to sit on the bench and staring. I love playing lots of games."

Bendtner spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Birmingham City, where he netted eight goals in 30 games, while last season he spent time on loan with Serie A champions Juventus, where he failed to score in 11 appearances.

But despite his questionable club form, Bendtner does boast a rather good international goalscoring record.

In 56 matches for Denmark, he has scored on an impressive 24 occasions.

Will Carlo Ancelotti or Gerardo Martino take Bendtner up on his offer next summer?
