Cisse admits Spanish dream

In-form Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has admitted that he dreams of playing for Real Madrid, but is happy on Tyneside for the time being.

The Senegal international has been a massive success since moving to the Premier League in a £10 million deal from Freiburg in January, and has scored 13 goals in his first 13 games.

With Alan Pardew’s men still in contention for a top-four finish Cisse has admitted to being happy at the club, but one day wants to play for some of Europe’s biggest teams.

“My long-term aim is to play for the biggest clubs and I want to win the Champions League,” the African marksman told The Sun.

“I have loved Real Madrid ever since I was a little boy.

“But I am happy for now at Newcastle. They are a big club — even though they are not a Manchester United or Manchester City,” he concluded.
