The Real Madrid striker has seen his future under Zinedine Zidane called into question but insists that he remains fully committed to the club

Alvaro Morata has seen his Real Madrid future called into question but the striker insists that he remains fully committed to the Primera Division leaders.

'Playing for Madrid the greatest sensation'

Reports have suggested that the Spain international "feels cheated", with Cadena Ser claiming that he feels that promises made last summer have been broken.

That was said to have led to a breakdown in the working relationship between Morata and coach Zinedine Zidane.

With the 24-year-old apparently disilluiosned with life back at the Santiago Bernabeu, he was said to be mulling over another move.

A return to Juventus – who saw Madrid exercise a buy-back option his contract in 2016 – has been mooted, while Premier League heavweights Arsenal and Chelsea are long-time admirers.

Morata, though, has taken to social media in an effort to bring an end to the rumours, stating on Instagram: "Whatever they say #HalaMadrid forever."

While he is not guaranteed a regular starting role at the Bernabeu, Morata has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season.

He has netted nine times in those outings but his last goal came against Deportivo La Coruna on December 10 – with a seven-game drought endured since then.
