Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata insists he doesn't want to leave Madrid after he has been linked with a move away.
Morata has played 11 times in La Liga this season scoring three goals and is supposed to have a big future ahead of him.
The young star has been linked with moves away from the Bernabeu after being watched by various clubs in Europe including English trio, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham but Morata wants to keep playing in Spain.
According to ESPN, Morata said: "Despite all the stories that have emerged, I am happy here.
"I have spoken with the club and the coach and told them I want to stay here.
"This is the team I have spent my entire life at and I will stay here and do whatever the club asks of me or needs of me, even if it's to play a minimal amount of games."
The Spaniard scored in Real Madrid's 5-0 win over Real Betis at the weekend and was only on the pitch for 13 minutes before he netted Madrid's fifth.
This moved the Spanish giants to within a point of the leaders Barcelona after they slipped up against Levante.
Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is said to want Morata to go out on loan so he can experience more first team football but the 21-year-old seems to want to fight for his place.
Morata will be competing with Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and young sensation Jese for a starting place in the Spanish sides star-studded line up.
