Asensio: Real Madrid youngster is going nowhere
Despite rumours of Liverpool moving for Marco Asensio this summer, the Spain international has no intention of leaving Real Madrid.
Marco Asensio will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer.
Neither Real Madrid nor Asensio to listen to any offers
Asensio only has eyes for Real. The forward is determined to fulfil his lifelong dream and be a success at the Santiago Bernabéu and, as things stand, no offer - no matter how enticing - will change his mind. Meanwhile, Los Blancos have no plans to negotiate the sale of a player who is under contract until 2023 and whose release clause has been set at a prohibitive 700m euros.
Asensio did not intend to open door to move with remarks yesterday
Speaking from Spain's World Cup camp in Russia yesterday, Asensio created uncertainty over his future when asked about Liverpool's reported interest, commenting: "It's something that's come out, [but] I'm just really focused on the World Cup. The time to talk about these types of things is when it's over."
However, AS has been told that Asensio's remarks were in no way made with the intention of leaving the door open to a move to the Premier League club. He felt that the days leading up to a World Cup knockout-stage match were not the moment to discuss his future; he was not saying anything beyond that.
He'll be at Real Madrid next season.
