Roberto Soldado insists he's staying with Real Madrid.

The striker has been linked with a loan move away, but he revealed: "Right now, I am only thinking to play here. It's always a hit to your confidence when you see your name in the newspapers and read that they think you may leave.

"I had doubts, but I spoke with the coach (Bernd Schuster) and he said to me that he trusted me. Also, (sports director Predrag) Mijatovic confirmed to me that the club was keeping me."
