Live broadcast, October 23. Recently, Real Madrid's Spanish winger Asencio participated in a talk show by DjMariio. He revealed that he had the opportunity to go to Barcelona before joining Real Madrid.
Asensio recounted: "I could have gone to Barcelona to play football. What made me decide to go to Real Madrid was the great interest that Real Madrid showed from the beginning. The transaction is wonderful for me and my family. Maybe say no to Real Madrid!"
Afterwards, Asensio talked about Nadal: “Yes, Rafa (Nadal) likes football and Real Madrid very much. His uncle is former Barcelona player Miguel Nadal, who was previously the sports manager of Mallorca. It was he who called Real Madrid and told them that they should sign me."
Last season’s serious injury also spread rumors that Asensio may leave Real Madrid. In this regard, he said: “Many clubs have shown interest in me, but my wish is to continue to succeed in Real Madrid. Zidane has always trusted Me, but I need to show my ability on the court and I am full of reveries about this."
Asensio started his career in Mallorca and made his debut in the Second Division on October 27, 2013, which attracted the attention of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and finally joined Real Madrid in the 2014 winter transfer window.
