Strike target happy with Real

Last Updated: Sun, 08 Dec 2013 04:07

Alvaro Morata has played down talk of a move to Tottenham or Arsenal and is happy with Real Madrid.

The youngster looked set to replace the misfiring Karim Benzema in the opening months of the campaign after scoring a number of important goals, but has fallen down the pecking order with Jese Rodriguez often getting the nod ahead of him.

The 21-year-old made 17 appearances last term and despite his lack of games is determined to work hard as he feels the Bernabeu is the best place to continue his education.

Tottenham failed with a bid to land Morata in the summer, while some reports have gone as far as suggesting a deal is in the place that will see Arsenal land him on loan in January.

However the youngster has played down all talk of a move and says he is happy with Real.

"My goal is to keep learning, I am young and I have a long way to go," Morata told Sportium. "It is a privilege to share a dressing room with the best players in the world.

"To train every day with them helps you to grow a lot, it's like doing a master's degree at the best club in history. I am convinced that I will gradually gain more prominence."
