Marcos Asensio: I've had offers to leave Real Madrid

Marcos Asensio admits he's had offers to leave Real Madrid.

The winger also says there was interest from Barcelona when he was coming through and making a name for himself at Real Mallorca.

"I could have played for Barcelona, but the incredible interest that Real Madrid showed from the start was what made my mind up," he said in an interview with DjMariio for PostUtd. "It's impossible to say 'no' to Real Madrid!"

Even after joining Los Blancos, though, the man from Mallorca has been faced with offers to leave. He has turned them all down, as he explained during the interview.

"There are many clubs that have been interested, but my wish is to stay at Real Madrid and to have success here," he said.
