Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio believes Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has been instructed by Real Madrid president not to play him, according to COPE’s reliable Miguel Angel Diaz.

Asensio believes that Real Madrid is putting pressure on him to accept a departure from the club this summer.

The 26 year old Spanish international is surprised he is being forced to leave Real Madrid this summer despite being the third highest goalscorer last season with 12 goals.

Asensio has just one year left on his Real Madrid contract and negotiations over a new deal has stalled.

The 26-year-old hasn’t played a single minute in Madrid’s last four games.
