Marco Asensio has suffered a rough start to the new season with Carlo Ancelotti barely giving him any playing time across all competitions. His future at the club is uncertain, with several reports saying that the club do not intend to renew his contract which expires next year.

He has only been on the pitch 54 minutes this season and is understandably frustrated with his situation at the club. At the same time, there have been shock links with arch-rivals Barcelona, who are seemingly interested due to his current contract situation.

In a recent interview with El Partidazo de Cope, he spoke about his future, the links to Barça and the events that unfolded in the last summer window.

On the rumours around his departure in the summer: “I had options but I never seriously thought for a moment that I wanted to leave Real Madrid.”

On Real Madrid fans: “I have a lot of respect for the Madrid fans at the Bernabéu, they are free to give their opinion.” 

On potentially joining Barcelona in the future: “I have not thought about it, I have not valued it. Right now, I can’t give you an answer.”

On being at Real Madrid: “I’m very happy at Real Madrid.”

On racist chants against Vinicius: “Racists are a minority, they don’t have to tarnish a hobby or a country.”

On Vinicius’ talent: “Vinicius is young & has a lot to learn. He motivates himself with that.”

On the status of his contract renewal: “Renewing at Real Madrid does not depend on me, it depends on many factors. I hope it can happen.” 

On Carlo Ancelotti: “Ancelotti is a great person & I’m delighted with him. I have no problem with him.”

On Barcelona’s interest in him: “I don’t know if Barça want me, many other clubs have come. This morning I had 200 messages. I am in a world where there are many rumours. 

“It’s normal because in January I can sign with any club and more will come out. We are in that circle that I cannot control.”

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
