Speaking after scoring in Real Madrid's 5-0 win over Real Betis on Sunday, Morata told reporters: "I have spoken with Carlo Ancelotti and the situation is clear.

"After many rumors about my future I can confirm that I am happy at Real.

"The club considers that I am necessary for the team and I have decided to stay until the end of season.

"I play for the best club in the world and I am obliged to improve my work. This is my mission. In the summer? I do not know, we will have to talk."
