Marco Asensio says he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid.

Asensio has emerged at the age of 21 as one of the best young players in the world and has been linked to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Barcelona.

Asensio has an €80 million release clause in his contract with Real Madrid. Asensio is likely to sign a new deal with Real Madrid that elevates that release clause to the €150 million range.

"I have a release clause although I don't think I'll be leaving here," Asensio said. "With how well I have been playing, I have earned the love of the fans. My idea is to stay. I would not go to PSG. I am happy here."

Asensio was close to joining Barcelona in 2014 but the club could not agree upon a payment schedule.

"In the end it is about fate," Asensio said. "The Barca deal was not done, and I am delighted to be at Real Madrid and to be able to defend this shirt. They were difficult days. When [agent] Horacio [Gaggioli] called and said Real Madrid were interested in me, I told him I only wanted to play there."
