Los Blancos ended up re-signing for Mariano Diaz from Olympique Lyon in the final week of the last transfer window.

However, Spain international Iago Aspas has revealed Real and Atletico Madrid showed interest in him.

"I personally did not call another team. It is true that several got in touch with my brother and my agent.

"I have always been honest; anyone interested had to come to an agreement with Celta first and then we would see if it interested me later.

"There were important teams, interest from Real Madrid and Atletico came out in the press and I imagine it was true.

"The club did not say anything to me. I suppose there were talks and nothing went any further."
