Spain international striker Morata returned to the Bernabeu from Juventus last month after the European champions activated the buy-back clause in his contract.

The striker has been heavily linked with moves to Arsenal and Chelsea this summer, but following Saturday’s International Champions Cup 3-2 win over Chelsea in Michigan, Zidane was asked about rumours linking Morata with the Premier League side – and he insisted he is not looking to immediately sell him at a profit.

“He’s a Madrid player, we’re delighted with him,” he said.“We are delighted to have him back, back to his original home. He will remain a Madrid player.”

Zidane was also asked about Chelsea forward Hazard who scored two late goals in the game – but refused to suggest Real Madrid were looking to sign him.

“There are rumours about tons of players potentially linked with this club,” he added.“He is a very, very good player. Obviously all clubs want the best players but he is a Chelsea player.”
