Marco Asensio showed his hopes nine months before his contract with Real Madrid ends and after ruling out leaving the club last market, of receiving a renewal proposal soon, but he did not deny the information that put him in the orbit of Barcelona nor did he assure that he would not play in the azulgrana team.
“Hopefully it can be renewed,” Marco Asensio assured in an interview with Cope’s ‘El Great Match’. “We’ll see what happens, you never know, in the world of football things can change very quickly. I can’t say anything else because I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Asked about Barcelona’s interest, Asensio made it clear that he is focused on Real Madrid and the national team, but he did not close the door. “Honestly, I don’t know. I’m really focused on what I’m doing. I only think about the present, now, giving everything with the national team and with my club”
“I haven’t even thought about it (playing for Barcelona), nor have I valued it. Right now I can’t give an answer, I don’t know. These are things that come out. This morning I had 200 messages. I tell you that I’m in a world where There are a lot of rumours, speculations, and it’s normal. In seven months I can sign with any club and it’s normal for many to leave and they will leave more surely. We are in that circle in which there will be news every day and I can’t control that”.
Asensio reviewed a difficult summer in which he considered leaving Real Madrid and explained the reasons why he decided to stay. “I’m in a good moment, calm. The month of August was a little more complicated due to the uncertainty but I’m happy with the decision I’ve made”.
