Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata has refuted reports that personal terms have been agreed to between himself and AC Milan, insisting that he is happy in Spain.
The 24-year old, who is yet to establish himself as a regular first XI starter despite scoring 20 goals across all competitions this season, may have sufficient reason to feel that he is not being used to his full potential but insists that his loyalties lie with his employers amid reports linking him with several European clubs.
The most recent of these emerged hours before the Champions League final was due to kick off and suggested that a move to the San Siro was imminent, something the player denied in an interview with Mediaset soon after the final whistle.
"I don’t know anything about Milan," the highly-rated striker, who has also been linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea, said. "I read these things in the papers but don’t know anything about them."
On the topic of his team's 4 – 1 demolition of his former club, Juventus, and the subsequent retention of their Champions League crown, Morata told beIN Sports: "To go back to Madrid again and win the Champions League is incredible.
"I think that it doesn’t depend on so much on me if I want to stay, I am happy here, my dream is to be here and right now I’m not thinking about anything but celebrating.
"This is a team," he continued. "Here we are 23, we have won together, we lose together and there’s no need to think individually.
"If not, I would have to play tennis," he added.
