Alvaro Morata: Going nowhere this January

Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing Morata but the player's coach in Spain has poured cold water on such an idea.

The 21-year-old has made just a single La Liga start this season but, with Karim Benzema the only other recognised centre forward available to Ancelotti, the Italian is keen to retain Morata.

Ancelotti said: "He doesn't lack anything, his only problem is the competition for places. This is Real Madrid.

"I have not spoken with him and there is nothing to speak about. No one has asked for him and, if a team did come in for him, the answer would be a clear no. He is staying."

Morata had earlier stressed he was not interested in leaving anyway, saying: "Real Madrid have been my team since I was little and will be all my life. Moving up to the first team is tricky.

"In football, it's very difficult to stay at the top and even more so in a team like Real."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
