Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes says he is keen to move back to Spain as he has not settled in London.
Reyes was a member of Spain's World Cup squad
The 22-year-old, a £10.5m signing from Sevilla in January 2004, has again been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
And Reyes was quoted in the News of the World as saying: "I have always said I want a return to Spain. I have not adapted to life in England.
"If Real Madrid want me that is marvellous. It would be an honour to play for them. Let's see what happens."
Reyes has made 110 appearances for the Gunners and scored 23 goals.
He has been linked with a move back to his homeland with Real before but signed a new six-year contract at Arsenal in July 2005.
"I have nothing against Arsenal, completely the opposite. It is a great club and they have helped me so much," Reyes added. "The fans have given me so much support since I joined.
"But they know that I have not got used to the language or the weather."
Reyes first admitted he was keen to join Real Madrid at the start of 2005, when he fell victim to a radio hoax.
He told a Spanish radio presenter - who Reyes thought was Real's sporting director Emilio Butragueno - that he was keen on a move to the Bernabeu.
