Various reports had claimed Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio is set to follow the footsteps of Alvaro Morata and dump Real Madrid for Chelsea after failing to get enough game time at Real Madrid.

Asensio has explained why he’s not ready to follow Alvaro Morata and dump Real Madrid for Chelsea.

“Morata’s case is very different [than mine],” Asensio said.

“When he returned to Madrid, he wanted to be more important. I am 21, just starting out in this. I always want to take advantage of the playing time I get from the coach, whether 15 or 20 minutes, or when starting, so that I can be counted on for important games in future.

“I like to have responsibility and feel very comfortable bringing things to the team.

“I do not feel under pressure, more that I like to have this pressure to demonstrate all that I can on the pitch. I’ve started the season well, scored goals, and I want to keep doing well for the team.”
