Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze who currently plays for Spanish giants Villarreal has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Chukwueze has been outstanding this season for Villarreal even though he has managed to score 13 goals in all competitions for the Yellow Submarine.

“That’s just noise. My dream is to play again in Europe with Villarreal. I have a contract until 2024, and I hope not to be free. The Roigs have behaved very well with me. They are like my family. The right thing is for me to leave good money in this club.”

With one game to end the season in Spanish La Liga, Chukwueze and his teammates at Villarreal are currently occupying fifth position on the table and will play Europa League next term.
