Jose Antonio Reyes hopes his brace of goals in Real Madrid’s final league match of the season will convince the club to sign him on a permanent deal from Arsenal.
Coach Fabio Capello has been reluctant to start Reyes in recent months and Madrid-based daily Marca claims that city rivals Atletico Madrid are close to reaching a deal with Arsenal for the forward.
However, Reyes is still hoping for a move to the Bernabeu after bringing the title back to Real for the first time in four years.
“I made Madrid champions and I’m so happy about that because that is the reason I came to the club,” Reyes is quoted in The Mirror.
“I just want to enjoy this moment because winning the title is so special for me and for all of us – I’m happy I was able to do my bit.
“Scoring two goals to help us win the last game of the season when we needed a victory is a great feeling for me, and I hope they aren’t my last goals for Real Madrid.
“Maybe what has happened will convince the club they would like to keep me.
“I’ve said many times what an honour it is to play for Real Madrid.”
