"I want to play here for many more years yet. I'd like to end my career at Real Madrid. Mourinho is the best coach in the world.

"I trust Mourinho and I want to pay him back by playing well. I've always wanted to train with Mourinho, even before I came to Real Madrid.
"I need to create more goalscoring opportunities and score ten goals for Real Madrid. I know I can do it. I was top scorer with the national team in 2012."
