Ghanaian right-back Daniel Opare says he has received assurances that he has a future at Real Madrid.

Opare, 19, is currently playing for Real Madrid Castilla in the Spanish second-flight but requested a loan move in January as he seeks further first-team football.

However, he has recently been training with the first-team and says he was not allowed to move on as he is on the verge of a breakthrough at the Bernabeu.

"They said am a good product," he told Ghanasoccernet. "They can't allow me to go to another team. They said my future is at Real Madrid and that I shouldn't worry - they will soon put me into action. I don't feel frustrated at all and am not in a rush, even though I want to play regularly."
