If Ronaldo wasn't happy at Madrid, he wouldn't be here - Marcelo

12 February 2018

Real Madrid are willing to allow young forward Marco Asensio to leave for Chelsea in the summer - but only if they are given Eden Hazard in return.

Midfielder Casemiro was left on the bench ahead of the PSG match, and Gareth Bale played only as a late substitute.

Emery's side racked up their 14th win in their last 15 games in all competitions to restore their 15-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 thanks to Neymar's solitary second-half strike.

Although third-placed Madrid crushed Real Sociedad 5-2 on Saturday at the Bernabeu, they still trail leaders Barcelona by 16 points and have no hope of defending their league title.

The Brazilian scored his 19th Ligue 1 goal of the season to put PSG in front against Toulouse. At the stroke of half-time, Real were 4-0 ahead of visitors, who only managed to regroup themselves in the second half by scoring 2 goals.

"I know that he will recover, sometimes we call each other simply to encourage one another".

However, the Real Madrid brand ambassador admitted that as of yet, no representative had contacted Neymar.

Cristiano Ronaldo got a hat-trick for the Los Merengues, while Lucas Vasquez and Toni Kroos were also on target for the home team.

"When Messi or Ronaldo will be in a bad shape, and we'll see more at Cristiano because of his age [33], Neymar will be the next Ballon d'Or victor". "We could have continued but we cannot stand at that pace for 90 minutes either".

But he had scored only four La Liga goals before the new year. "I was asked before [during the January transfer window] why weren't we going to sign anyone", Zidane said. From the first minute the game has been uphill.

"Everything depends on that tie [against PSG], we're playing for our season", said the 31-year-old defender, as per AS.

According to Balague, who works for Sky Sports as an expert on Spanish football, Madrid have received no offers for either player since the summer - and none of those were from Liverpool anyway.
