Marco Asensio has insisted he has no interest in signing for Paris Saint-Germain and wants to stay at the Bernabeu.
He also scored after coming off the bench in his side's 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final last season, and has since gone on to establish himself as a mainstay among Real Madrid's multitude of star names to begin the 2017/18 campaign.
Since leaving, Morata has attracted considerable praise for his promising start to life at Stamford Bridge, scoring three goals and laying on another two in four Premier League appearances.
"It's true that when you look at the players that we had, like Morata and Mariano, when you look now and you have only have Mayoral you could think we lack a number nine and that might be the case". No, I would not go to PSG.
At the end of the day it wasn't to be, above all with Morata. "He is an important player in the squad, he is a leader". I'd have liked him to have stayed but he wanted to play more and he wanted to leave. I believe in Mayoral. He is young, has desire and is hungry.
With that being said, Neymar's exit will undermine Barcelona success this season.
"The same thing happened last year, we're not worried", the coach said.
There was certainly a scare a few months ago regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's future with the club, with the issue resolved quickly. Alvaro Morata (Chelsea) and Pepe (Besiktas) each found new settings for their careers, while James Rodriguez was sent out on-loan to Bayern Munich. He's very happy to be back as well because he loves playing football.
