"No, not really, because I'm very happy here".

Goals Cristiano Ronaldo scored in Real Madrid's Champions League-winning campaign last season.

Marco Asensio has confirmed he received offers from Barcelona and other clubs before eventually joining Real Madrid.

Asensio was signed by Madrid for a reported €3.9million in late 2014, but it could have been so different.
