Real Madrid boss Zidane reveals transfer window regret

Real Madrid boss Zidane reveals transfer window regret

Real Madrid sensation Marco Asensio has revealed that Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane compared his left foot to that of Barcelona's Lionel Messi, following the young Spaniard's blistering early season form.

Spanish football giants Real Madrid will look to get back to winning ways in front of their fans when they open their defence of the Champions League with a home game against Apoel Nicosia on Wednesday.

Leo Messi was again the hero in the Camp Nou as he scored a hat-trick in the Barcelona derby, with Barca's remaining goals scored by Gerard Pique and a fit-again Luis Suarez, reports Xinhua news agency.

Speaking to 'COPE', Asensio revealed that the 1998 Ballon d'Or victor told him that he had never seen a left foot like his since that of Messi's, after a stunning individual start to the season for the 21-year-old which has seen him notch four goals in six games.

'I don't know how much I'm worth... What is put in my [buyout] clause.

"If I would go to PSG? He is an important player in the squad, a leader who always wants to win and instills that among his teammates", the former Real Madrid player added. "With everything that has happened recently he has his head on straight and I'm very happy to see him back on the pitch".

"We all thought it was unusual that Barcelona could not keep him but he is a great player and will be fantastic for them".

Since moving to the Bernabeu from Mallorca in 2014, Asensio has made 26 appearances in La Liga.
