"Yes, for sure. My intention is to continue at Real Madrid, to be great here and to contribute as best as I can. I feel that I still have a lot to give the club. As many already know, I’m a Madridista and I have been since I was little. I live this club, beyond just being a player, I really feel both victories and defeats. It’s from the heart," Asensio said, reported Goal.
"It’s been good for me to rest these last weeks after such a long season. Now I’m 100% recovered, not only physically but also in confidence; I’ve recovered from those mental barriers that appear with an injury like this. I’m perfectly fine and able to perform at 100%."
