Marco Asensio discusses Barcelona interest and commitment to Real Madrid

This is what he has told the 21-year-old Spainish global who has hit the ground running so far this season, scoring four goals in six matches for Zidane's side - all of them impressive strikes from distance with his left peg.

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.

It seems Asensio is content at Real Madrid and a move to PSG is certainly not on the cards at least for the next few seasons and if recent performances are anything to go by, the Spanish intentional is going to set the world alight in the years to come.

He is clear to play in the Group H clash against Cypriot champions APOEL, and Zidane said: "He's in a very good mood and is very happy to play, because this is what he really loves, playing football".

Asked by Cope whether he was aware of the Barcelona offer, Asensio replied: "I know there were some clubs interested but. yeah".

Reports in Spain during the summer of 2014 claimed that Barcelona were close to signing Asensio in a deal worth around €4.5m.

Marco Asensio has insisted he has no interest in signing for Paris Saint-Germain and wants to stay at the Bernabeu.

"If I would go to PSG?"

Ronaldo's return boosts Real's attack after a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Levante on Saturday, their second successive home draw which left them trailing early Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad by four points. I guess what my [release] clause says.

"The end is the destination, not Barca, and I was delighted to be at Real Madrid and to defend this shirt".
