Reports coming from the Express this week claimed that Arsenal had signed the Spanish striker on a six-month loan deal.

Yet, almost immediately, rumours started to drip through that this was far from the case, with Spanish newspaper, Marca, one of the first to report Madrid’s adamant refusal that a transfer had been agreed.

Now, the final say in the matter has come from the striker himself who, speaking on the Real Madrid official website, said,

“I feel a lot of confidence from the (assistant) coach, Zidane, the entire coaching staff and the club. I am 21, I’m happy at Real Madrid and I want to be here long. A player always wants to play and the coach has shown me trust. He has brought me into a lot of games that were hard and I am very happy. I have to repay the confidence they have in me. “

One Comment to Arsenal frustrated after €12m Real striker declares loyalty

  1. Frustrated? Who? We are? You are imaging too much. Morata not even get his regular spot yet. Certainly not enough reference about this story dude. With Benzema and probably Suarez next year, the kid himself have a mountain to climb. Poor young Morata.
