Jose Antonio Reyes insists he is happy to pledge his future to Arsenal.Jose Antonio Reyes insists he is happy to pledge his future to Arsenal, despite conceding again he would be interested in playing for Real Madrid.
The Spain international has been the subject of intense speculation since the turn of the year after twice claiming he wanted to join Real.
He admits that, if Real declare a firm interest in his services, he would have to seriously think about returning to his homeland.
But Reyes has stressed that does not mean he is unsettled at Highbury and he is fully focused on helping The Gunners.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger splashed out £10.5 million to bring the attacker to North London in January 2004 and Reyes does not regret making the move.
Reyes is adamant he is happy in The Premiership with Arsenal and will not demand a switch to Santiago Bernabeu, preferring to leave his future in The Gunners' hands.
"Joining Arsenal was the best decision I've ever made," affirmed Reyes.
"There's been a lot of talk that I want to join Real Madrid this summer but the truth is that I'm happy at Arsenal.
"I still expect to achieve more success and win many more titles here.
"But nobody must forget that Spain is my country and Real Madrid are the best team there.
"So, if they want me, it's understandable I'd think about it seriously.
"But my future lies here. It's a matter for Arsenal to decide and they'll have to speak to me and Real Madrid if there's genuine interest."
