Marco Asensio happy at Real Madrid, 'would not go to PSG'
Marco Asensio says he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid and was surprised to see Neymar join Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona this summer.
Asensio, 21, has emerged as one of the best young talents in world football over the last year, earning a regular place in Zinedine Zidane's side and making his first senior start for Spain in the recent 3-0 World Cup qualifier win at home to Italy.
Asensio said former Barcelona star Neymar's world-record €222m move to PSG this summer had surprised the Madrid dressing room.
Asked to compile a player from the assets of other world stars, Asensio included Madrid teammates Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos.
Asensio was named after former Netherlands striker Marco van Basten by his late Dutch mother, the player said former Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy had tried to convince him to play for the Oranje.
