Ancelotti Talks Down Suarez Interest

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed striker Álvaro Morata's imminent departure from the club.

Morata only made four starts for Real Madrid in all competitions last season, coming on as a substitute 24 times, though he was able to net nine goals in all appearances.

"Morata wants to look for an opportunity to get more playing time and the club agrees with him. I think it would be good to give him that opportunity for a year," Ancelotti said at the unveiling of his official website, according to Marca.

"If he leaves we would like to sign a striker with similar characteristics, a youngster."

Though Ancelotti was clear he wants another striker, he was more guarded when discussing rumoured Real target Luis Suarez.

"He's a quality player, but talking about some things too much at this point would be showing a lack of respect," he added.

"It's impossible to improve the attacking blend that Real Madrid has. With Cristiano, Benzema, Bale, Jesé... the strikers are very competitive. Although everyone can see that Suarez is fantastic.

"I think that the squad is very good and we're very competitive. If we can improve, then we'll improve, but I'm not in any rush to say that's something we need to do.

"I'm very content, very happy with this squad."
