My Situation At Real Madrid Is Different From Alvaro Morata's - Marco Asensio

Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea earlier this year for a fee of £70 million

Marco Asensio has offered up an assessment of the differences between his and ex-Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata's lack of game time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Thibaut Courtois won the Premier League Golden Glove last term, it would be a big blow for Chelsea if he left.

Per ESPN FC's Dermot Corrigan, he said: "Morata's case is very different [than mine]".

"There's nothing more I can say other than I am a player for Spain and for Athletic Club, nothing else matters to me".

"I am only starting out my career, I'm a 21-year-old and can not expect to be playing every match when there is such great competition for places".

LaVar Ball fires back at Trump in heated CNN interview
Ball suggested that he and Chinese president Xi Jinping had more to do with securing his son's release than the president. Trump told the three Bruins, who have been suspended indefinitely by their basketball program.

"I've always said that what I'm trying to do is work with the hope of being more and more important, and taking advantage of the minutes they give me".

Asensio was asked to sum up teammate Cristiano Ronaldo's current mood, with the Portuguese having scored just one goal in the 2017-18 La Liga so far, but also netting six times in the first four Champions League group games.

The 21-year-old has had to be patient under Zinedine Zidane this season, with only 10 of his 19 appearances for Los Blancos coming from the start.

The midfielder is not alarmed by the number of minutes he is receiving, and the game time he is being handed is impressive for a player of his age.

Morata was unfortunate to play for the club at the same time as the untouchable Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, whom Zidane has kept faith in even amid some less than stellar form over the previous year.
