Marco Asensio has revealed that Real Madrid did not offer him the chance to upgrade his number 20 shirt this season.
The Spain international has started gaining prominence in the Lopetegui led side. However. the club didn’t approach him to occupy the number 7 shirt which is now being worn by new signing Mariano Diaz after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.
In a chat with reporters based on quotes from Diario AS, Asensio said:
“I did not have the chance to decide my shirt number”
“No other numbers were offered to me, I was never told about any change in the club’s plans so I have not had a decision to make.”
When asked if he had any desires to wear the number 10 shit which is currently occupied by Luka Modric, he said:
“Well yes, I have always liked that number.
“But it has a very capable occupier at the moment! Perhaps in future years we can talk about it.”
