Marco Asensio discusses Barcelona interest and commitment to Real Madrid

The striker impressed during his start to Madrid's season, already scoring four goals in six appearances for Los Blancos.

The potential of Asensio is likely to lead to Real cashing in on Gareth Bale at some point but it is thought Zinedine Zidane wanted another season of development under the youngster's belt before allowing the Welsh star to leave.

Asensio has already netted on his debuts in all of La Liga, the Copa Del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, Champions League and European Super Cup.

The coach said that Ronaldo was focused on the task ahead and was very happy to have the opportunity to play again.

"I would not join Paris Saint-Germain, I am happy where I am".

Madrid went on to win their first league game of the season in his absence, but that was followed by successive home draws with Valencia and Levante.

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

The Madrid talisman also recalled how he came close to signing for Barcelona prior to joining Real, only for the Catalan club to pull out of the deal - but he has no regrets.

'He was an important player for them and they couldn't hold onto him. No, I would not go to PSG.

"It seemed odd to us that Neymar left Barcelona".

'The end is the destination, not Barca, and I was delighted to be at Real Madrid and to defend this shirt'. "We can not talk about a dependency, but I always want him to be with us".

"We can't be happy with the results, but you're always going to have a few bad results in a season". I can't remember what Marco's clause is it but it is high.
