Published Add your comment

Alvaro Morata says he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid on loan in January.

The Spanish international has found regular game-time hard to come by this season at the Barnabeu, and has been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Both Tottenham and Arsenal are reportedly interested in the talented youngster, who was top-scorer at the U21 European Championships in the summer.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger yesterday denied that he had spoken to Madrid regarding a loan move for Morata in an attempt to bolster his threadbare attacking unit.

Previous reports had suggested that Tottenham would use the "special relationship" that they established with the Spanish giants following Luka Modric's switch to lure Morata to White Hart Lane - however the striker himself insists he won't be going anywhere.

"I only think about succeeding at Real Madrid," he told AS.

"Every day I work hard to earn myself a place in the team, but I know that I have had the support of [coach Carlo] Ancelotti since the first day that he came here.

"To Jose Mourinho I owe a great deal for promoting me up to the first team and I will always have a special feeling towards him. He is an incredible coach."

According to reports in Spain, both Arsenal and Tottenham have approached Madrid over the prospect of a loan move - only to be told that he is going nowhere.

That is a sentiment echoed by the player himself - who says it is his goal to emulate club legend Raul.

"Raul [Gonzalez] has always been a hero to me," Morata continued. "He is considered to be the best player in the history of Real Madrid and Spanish football.

"Cristiano [Ronaldo] is also a great player, out of this world, the complete player, the best. [Karim] Benzema is impressive also and I can learn a lot from him.

"Also, [Gareth] Bale is now showing what he can do and is one of the best players in the world and he was a great signing."
