Carlo Ancelotti has said Real Madrid won't move to bring in a player in the last week of the transfer window, even if forward Marco Asensio leaves the club.

Manager Ancelotti said on Thursday that Asensio was considering a move in search of increased playing time.

LaLiga champions Madrid have brought in defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni this summer, while Casemiro, Isco, Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic have all left from last year's first-team squad.

"I don't know anything new. He's evaluating his position, and we're waiting," Ancelotti said in a news conference on Saturday when asked for an update on Asensio's situation.

"By Sept. 2 everything will be clear. If Asensio stays, he'll be an important player in our squad... If he wants to go, if there are good options for him and the club, we can look at it. But if he stays, we'll be delighted. He gave us a lot last year and can give us a lot this year."
