Spanish striker Raul de Tomas refused to discuss a potential return to Real Madrid for next season following an impressive loan spell at Rayo Vallecano

De Tomas is on loan at Rayo for a second campaign and he’s continued from where he left off last term with eight goals in his 16 La Liga games.

This impressive stat means that he has outscored all of Real’s players with Karim Benzema being his closest rival in the league on seven goals.

But, considering that Rayo are down in 18th-place in the standings, De Tomas’ exploits are far more impressive and this has not gone unnoticed in Spain.

“The circumstances are like this because we have decided them this way,” De Tomas told Marca on a return to Madrid.
