Real Madrid's Marco Asensio: 'Neymar leaving Barcelona for PSG is strange'

Two won't be tolerated.

Marco Asensio has confirmed he received offers from Barcelona and other clubs before eventually joining Real Madrid.

"The same thing happened a year ago so we're not anxious at all, the opposite", said Zidane, who is the first coach to successfully defend the European Cup since 1990 and has won seven trophies since taking charge of Real in January 2016.

Ahead of their Champions League opener against Cyprus club APOEL on Wednesday, the La Liga holders announced the players to lead them in this campaign.

"Cristiano doesn't just contribute goals, he's a leader, he always wants to win and he transmits that to everyone else".

As well as Ronaldo, Zidane is set to recall Luka Modric and Keylor Navas after resting them to his side's cost against Levante, although Karim Benzema is out for at least a month with a hamstring injury.

But in the offseason Morata was lost to Chelsea, where he has three goals already, and Diaz transferred to Lyon.

Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis says Brazil teammate Neymar "made the right decision" to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain this summer. "It would have been nice to have kept Morata, but we have to understand that he wanted to play more minutes and chose to leave".

"Real Mallorca signed me when I was a nine-year-old, but it was my parents who decided but every boy has dreams".

Apoel are the "Cinderellas" of the group, but the Cypriot side has a wealth of European experience and have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the past. He is a player for the future and he is going to give us a lot to be happy about.
