Real Madrid’s young star Marco Ascencio was in the TV show “COPE” and admitted he was very close to the transfer to Barcelona.
Asencio revealed that Barcelona tried first to sign with him, but failed to reach a deal with Mallorca.
“When I debuted for Mallorca’s first team, Barca appeared who was interested in me. In the end, it was destiny. Barca failed to reach a deal with Mallorca and now I am happy to be here because I am a fan of Real, “Asensio said.
“After the unsuccessful negotiations with Barca, my agent appeared and told me that Real is interested in me. After a few hours with a private plane I arrived in Madrid and signed for Real, ” adds the young Spaniard.
Real did not make a mistake and brought Asencio to 4 million euros, and today he is one of the greatest talents in the world.
