Real Madrid Star Responds To Liverpool Links

A Real Madrid star has responded to the rumours linking him with a possible move to 2017/18 UEFA Champions League runners-up Liverpool in the upcoming season.

'Real Stopped Me From Playing 2014 WC Final!'

Spain international Marco Asensio, who is currently competing at the 2018 FIFA World Cup,  started last season with a flourish of goals but towards the back end of the campaign struggled to retain his place in Los Blancos’ star-studded lineup.

The 22-year-old, whose buy-out clause is reportedly €700 million (R11 billion ) brushed aside the reports suggesting that he is on his way to Anfield, saying that he will only think about his club future once he is done with La Furia Roja's campaign in Russia.

"That is something in the news, but I am very focused in the World Cup,” Asensio said, according to FourFourTwo.

"When it ends, we can talk about that kind of thing. I am very focused here in Russia, on the national team and performing well here."

The former Espanyol star, who signed a new six-year deal with the Madrid side in September, made 53 appearances for Real last season, scoring 11 goals and assisting in a further six strikes.

Do you think Asensio will have a more prominent role with Julen Lopetegui now in charge at Los Blancos? Have your say in the comments section below.
