Miguel Torres insists he's not unsettled at Real Madrid, despite failing to see regular action under coach Bernd Schuster this season.

The fullback said: "I know my situation is a lot different compared to last season, but I am young and I have patience.

"I knew I was going to compete with the best players in the world. If you are not willing to accept this, then you should look for an exit. The fact is I have wanted to play for Real Madrid since I was a kid and the desire remains the same.

"But it is difficult to fight with Sergio (Ramos) or Michel (Salgado) for a place and that the chances this season are not the same as last year."
