Alvaro Morata insists he has nothing to prove to anyone especially Zinedine Zidane, following his buy-out clause re-activation from Juventus. The Spaniard made it clear that he must feel valued at Real Madrid or his return would have been for nothing.
Recent reports confirm Madrid redeemed their €30m repurchase option for Morata after the striker had spent the last two seasons at Juventus.
Be that as it may, Morata remains adamant that he would only stay at the Santiago Bernabeu if he is given an opportunity for first team action.
“I agree to be one more and fight for my place, but my desire is to be happy and at where I want to be,” the Spain international told Cuatro.
“I don’t have anything to prove to Zidane, I’m not a Castilla player who’s earned the opportunity of a preseason with Real Madrid.
“[Madrid] will decide if I’m qualified to be a Real Madrid player. I will give everything to try to fight for a spot and, if not, another solution will be found.
“I’m not thinking about my future much because I’m here playing for the Spanish national team, trying to win a European Championship.
“At the moment I’m calm, and I’ll wait and see what happens. Right now, I’m a Real Madrid player and I can’t say anything else.
“I’d love to stay at the club, but I want to be important for the team and fight for my place.”
