The striker played a key role in Spain’s European under 21 Championship victory.
Alvaro Morata has confirmed that he will be staying at Real Madrid this summer following rumours that he was planning on leaving the Spanish giants, Goal.com reports.
Doubts had been raised about Morata’s future at Los Blancos, with the striker saying that he would leave the club if they signed anymore strikers.
However, following his excellent recent performances for Spain’s under 21’s at the European Championships, the player will get an opportunity to establish himself in the Real Madrid first-team.
Morata played a crucial role in helping Spain’s under 21’s win the European Championships in Israel, finishing as the tournaments top goal scorer with 4 goals.
Speculation had mounted that Morata may seek a move away from Madrid in order to get first team football but the striker confirmed that he would stay at Madrid following a phone call from Madrid president Florentino Perez.
“I called the president and he told me that I will stay at Real Madrid next season. He is very happy with me,” said Morata after Spain’s victory in the European Championship final against Italy.
Morata also said he was trying to persuade Spanish team-mate Isco to join him at Madrid while also casting fresh doubt on Thiago Alcantara’s future at Barcelona.
