Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao says that he now feels 'more valued' at the capital outfit.

Fabio Coentrao has said he now feels 'more valued' at Real Madrid.

The Portuguese international has been consistently linked with a move away from the Bernabeu over the last couple of years, with Manchester United failing with a late loan move in January.

United were expected to return this summer, but Madrid insisted earlier in the window that the full-back would not be departing the capital outfit.

"I hope to continue. This is my fourth year at Real Madrid and I'm happy and I hope I continue. I think I'm valued much more now," he told reporters.

Coentrao helped Madrid win the European Super Cup last night with a 2-0 win over Sevilla.
