Spanish striker Iago Aspas has confirmed he wants to end his career at Celta Vigo.

Having spent most of his career with the club since he joined them in 2015, Aspas adds that the train of Real Madrid would have to talk to his club first before talking to him to come on board their team.

He scored 117 goals and appeared in 279 official games in nine seasons.

“Yes, I am very happy with my current situation,” Aspas told Cadena Cope via Football Espana.

“Here I am with my family and very excited, but it does not bother me that they say otherwise outside of Vigo – I would like to retire here.”

“Real Madrid? That train whistled and left the station. They would have to talk to Celta first if they were interested and then speak to me only after that.”

“Antonio Mohamed’s sacking? We only found out after it happened, but the club wanted to change and we back what the club want to do, we look forward to working with the new Coach.”

“Real Madrid’s complaints? We did not play a hard match, we are a not a team who kicks out or tries to injure players, that game was normal.”

“Spain against Croatia? It will be a very tough game for us, because they have several of the best players in the world.”
