Asensio: I wouldn't join PSG

Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio would ‘not join Paris Saint-Germain’ despite having a release clause in his contract, stating he was happy in Spain.

The 21-year-old was asked about his future following reports in El Mundo Deportivo his current deal contained an €80m release clause at Los Blancos.

“Yes it’s true I have a release clause here, but no I don’t think I will be leaving,” Asensio told Cadena Cope’s El Partidazo show.

“I believe I have been playing very well and this has been replicated by the fans and the club who have shown me a lot of love.

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

“Neymar’s move to PSG? We all thought it was strange that Barcelona could not keep him but he is a great player and will be fantastic for them.”

In a wide-ranging interview, the in-form forward also revealed he turned down the opportunity to join Barcelona before moving to the Bernabeu.
