Ancelotti confirms Real Madrid won't buy a replacement for Asensio

With less than a week left of the summer transfer window, the 26-year-old is seeking game time away from the Los Blancos with Premier League pair Arsenal and Manchester United interested.

Being totally out of pecking order at the Los Blancos,

Marco Asensio

has only earned 8 minutes of game-time across

Real Madrid's

three opening matches as the Spaniard wants regular game-time in the World Cup season.

Ahead of Madrid's Monday La Liga match at

Espanyol

, the Italian coach didn't rule out Asensio's exit.

Carlo Ancelotti

told his press conference:

"There is nothing new with regards to his situation.

"He is evaluating his situation and we are waiting. On September 2, if he is still here, he will be an important player in our squad. I'd be delighted because he contributes a lot.

"But if Marco leaves, we are not going to sign anyone because we don't need them."

 

Dani Ceballos

is another Madrid player with an uncertain future as he enters the final year of his contract. However, the Italian tactician confirmed

Ceballos

will stay with Madrid this season.

"Dani is going to stay, there is no doubt,"

the Italian said.

"He wants to stay and we are delighted.

"He hasn't played much yet, but next week we have three games, and he will have more minutes because he deserves it."

For the 34th time in their history, the

Champions League

winners have made a perfect start to the season by winning all of their opening two matches as they are looking to maintain their 100 per cent record when they travel to Catalunya this Monday.

"When you're travelling so often, there is not a lot you can do,"

he said.

"We do intense work for those who have not played, while the others must rest.

"We have had to do a little more video work than usual. But the less you work, the less damage you can do."
