Asensio will win Ballon d'Or - Vazquez

Updated: 

Marco Asensio is a future winner of the Ballon d'Or, according to Real Madrid team-mate Lucas Vazquez.

Asensio, 21, has starred early in the season, scoring four goals in five games in all competitions, including a brace against Valencia on Sunday.

The three-time Spain international was lauded by Vazquez, who joined him in Julen Lopetegui's squad as a replacement for the injured Vitolo.

"He is spectacular," Vazquez told Cadena SER about Asensio.

"He is at a very high level and still has to grow. We hope to enjoy him a lot. He is very humble and takes everything with ease.

"It's soon to say about the Ballon d'Or, but I think so."

Madrid are unbeaten to start the season, having won the UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de Espana, while they sit fifth in LaLiga after being held by Valencia.
