Jose Antonio Reyes has admitted he does not want to feature in Arsenal’s Champions League qualifying clash with Dinamo Zagreb as it could threaten his move Real Madrid.
If Reyes played in teh match he would be cup-tied, making him less attractive to Real.
Real have shown an interest in Reyes and he seems keen to earn a move to the Bernabeu.
“He [Arsene Wenger] has not said anything to me, and I do not know if I am going to play or not,” he told Marca.
“I hope not and that everything can be solved before. It is clear that if I play the move to Madrid would be complicated.
“But if I must play, I will play.”
Reyes says his agent is in talks with Real officials.
“The subject is being taking care of by Mariano Aguilar, she is speaking with the clubs and has my full confidence,” he continued.
“I cannot deny I am a little anxious, I know people want me [to stay in England] but I cannot adapt to this life.
“I miss Spain and I have a unique opportunity to return with Real Madrid. Everybody must understand that I cannot let an opportunity like this pass – Madrid is unique.”
