Spain international Marco Asensio has explained that he never wanted to leave Spanish side Real Madrid during the last summer transfer after being linked with a move to Liverpool.

"I've never had the intention to go anywhere.
"This is my third season in Madrid. In this one I think I have continuity and more prominence, and I'm seeing improvement in the performances I'm doing," Asensio said according to UK Mirror.
