Real Madrid star Marco Asensio dismisses PSG speculation

Real Madrid youngster Marco Asensio has today opened up on Barcelona's interest in him during his time with Mallorca, as well as his happiness at the Bernabeu.

The 21-year-old Spain worldwide has been lauded for his performances, and Zidane has clearly been impressed.

While he had always been regarded as one of Spanish football's most talented young stars, the extent of the impact he has gone on to make in such a short space of time could not have been predicted.

"How much is it worth?"

"I have a price and I do not think that I move from here", the attacking player told El Partidazo de Cope. "He never reproached me about anything in the games we played". No, I would not go to PSG.

While Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for pushing a referee, Madrid has made a relatively poor start to retaining the Spanish league title, lying four points behind Barcelona after three rounds.

Cristiano Ronaldo is eager to return to action as he prepares for his first start of the season when Real Madrid begin their Champions League defence on Wednesday against APOEL Nicosia, coach Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday.

He recalled Barca's interest in his services, with Asensio's agent - Horacio Gaggioli - having previously said Madrid's rivals missed their opportunity earlier in 2014.

The Atletico defender also said he felt that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo had been fortunate to win the Ballon d'Or past year, in a vote that saw Messi finish second and Atletico's Antoine Griezmann third.
