The 25-year-old joined the Spanish giants from Lens in 2011 and has since won two La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues, the Copa del Rey and the European Super Cup on three occasions.

After an incredible period of lifting trophies, Satin now believes that he is looking for a new challenge.

‘So I think at this moment in his career he is having a profound reflection, I don’t think he has fully decided to leave Real Madrid, but he is thinking about it.
‘Because he has won everything that you can at Real Madrid, because he feels like he has the feeling that he has done what was to be done over there, and there could be a new cycle.
‘Aside from that, I have not spoken directly with Raphaël myself.’
Manchester United are interested in the services of the Frenchman while Juventus would also be in the hunt if he does become available.
However, Real boss Zinedine Zidane has dismissed talk of his compatriot leaving: ‘I can tell you he is very happy here, has been here eight years, has done phenomenal so far.
‘I don’t see him as people have said recently, he looks happy and committed in what he is doing.’

‘I’m at Real Madrid. The biggest club in the world. I’m constantly in a state of challenging myself because the requirement here is that of the highest level.
‘I’m focused on my career. We had a tough time in the middle of the season where we had to fight. I’ve given my all in this shirt and I can be proud of that.
‘I cannot control everything that’s said [in the media]. Many things aren’t right but I can’t say I’m unhappy in Madrid.’
