Lucas Vazquez keen on Real Madrid stay

The Spain international says he feels more at home than ever in Zinedine Zidane's squad following recent reports of Premier League interest

Lucas Vazquez sees no reason to consider leaving Real Madrid as he enjoys his brightest patch of form for the La Liga giants.

Spain international Vazquez is enjoying an extended run in Zinedine Zidane's side and scored his fourth league goal of the season in Sunday's 6-3 crushing of Girona.

Madrid have won in seven of the winger's last eight La Liga starts, with his form enough to consign Gareth Bale to the bench.

And, as a current member of the national team squad bound for the World Cup, Vazquez is happy to fight for a spot at the club he re-joined from Espanyol in 2015.

"I think I'm at the sweetest moment with the most confidence since I came to Madrid, contributing to the team and getting good results," the 26-year-old told Onda Cero .

"My dream has always been to play for Real Madrid. When they proposed [the return] to me it was like seeing a lifetime's work rewarded.

"I am very happy at Real Madrid, it is the team that formed me as a player and I hope I can stay for many years."

Arsenal and Liverpool had been linked with summer bids for Vazquez, but any approaches look set to end in disappointment.

Madrid coach Zidane confirmed in February that Vazquez , along with Marco Asensio, was an important member of the squad following his impressive performance in a 3-1 win at Leganes.

"I think they have always been important for me, I'm glad for Lucas because he deserves it," Zidane told a post-match news conference.

Vazquez will be looking to add to his three international caps when Spain meet Germany and Argentina in a pair of friendlies on Friday and next Tuesday.
