Asensio happy with Real

Azerbaijan's Champions League pioneers are assured enthusiastic support from across the country

Real Madrid star Marco Asensio revealed coach Zinedine Zidane had told him his left foot was the best he had seen since Lionel Messi.

The 21-year-old has been a revelation for Los Blancos in the early part of the new season, scoring four goals in six games, and speculation has linked him with a move.

While he had always been regarded as one of Spanish football's most talented young stars, the extent of the impact he has gone on to make in such a short space of time could not have been predicted.

Madrid won LaLiga and the Champions League last term, with Ronaldo playing a crucial role in the knockout stages of the European competition as he netted 10 times.

He unleashed a left-footed thunderbolt to help Madrid beat Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup last month and the Spain worldwide claims his club manager has likened him to their bitter rivals' biggest star.

"I don't know how much I'm worth..."

"Zidane told me that since Messi, he had never seen a left foot like mine", Asensio told Spanish radio station COPE ahead of his side's Champions League opener against Greek team Apoel Nicosia. No, I would not go to PSG.

"We're happy to have Ronaldo back - physically he is very fit and mentally with all that has happened, with all the talk, he is in a good place".

Asensio was signed by Madrid for a reported €3.9million in late 2014, but it could have been so different.

A Real Madrid star has insisted he has no desire to join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, despite the recent rumours surrounding his future.
