thumbnail Hello,

The Spanish midfielder is unwilling to return to the Santiago Bernabeu with the Portuguese in charge and has set his sights on an extension to his loan deal

Real Madrid-owned Pedro Leon has declared that he is likely to stay at Getafe on loan beyond the end of the season.

The 25-year-old winger returned to Getafe last summer on a season-long loan deal after falling out with Madrid coach Jose Mourinho during his first year at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Portuguese coach has indicated that he will stay at Madrid if he continues to have the board's trust, and Leon feels there is no room for him at the club as long as Mourinho is in charge.

"In my contract with Getafe there is a clause which says that the deal could be extended, but up to this date, I do not know what will happen and I have not spoken with anyone about it," he told a press conference.

"For what is coming out in the press, it seems that Madrid's coach will stay.

"This is the same situation as last year, so I will stay here."

Leon then spoke of his relief to be once again fully fit as a series of injuries has restricted him to just nine competitive appearances since the start of the season.

"Yes, this has been a difficult year, with a lot of bad luck," he noted. "After my last knee injury, it has been more than a month since I have been included in a squad for match.

"But I am here to try to help Getafe in the four matches remaining. We have to keep in mind that if we win three of them, we will compete in Europe next season."
