Real Madrid star Marco Asensio has dealt Manchester United a transfer blow as he eyes a new contract at Real Madrid.

Asensio has less than a year left on his Real Madrid contract and has revealed he is keen on signing a new Real Madrid contract despite interest from Manchester United.

Speaking to Radio Marca, the 26-year-old said: “There is talk that I am changing Real Madrid’s mind. But I have always tried to give the best that I have inside and then it will be known.

“The one who decides, too, is the club, it does not only depend on me. After the World Cup, we’ll both make a decision. What if I want to renew?

“Hopefully it can happen and I’ll be very happy at Real Madrid for many years, hopefully everything will be given to stay for 10 more years.”
