During the previous transfer season, Kylian Mbappe was the focus of attention for Real Madrid. Real have given some of their players some thinking after signing the French sensation.
There was Marco Asensio on that list. Since joining Real in 2014, the Spanish winger has shown interest in leaving the organization. But after a lot of turmoil, Mbappe told Real “no.” Real received no bid for Asensio.
Asensio is a “free player” in the upcoming calendar year. In June of this year, the deal with Real comes to an end. Now, if you like, you can carry on discussing terms with other teams. Arsenal and Manchester United of the Premier League shown interest in him last year. Although the circumstances have slightly changed over the past six months, Asensio still has the option of leaving Real.
The 27-year-old attacker claimed he does want to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu, though. played effectively as a replacement on Thursday in the Copa del Rey round of 16 matchup over Villarreal. At the conclusion of the game, despite not scoring, coach Carlos Ancelotti commended him for helping to quicken the assault.
Asensio stated, “This topic has been discussed.” In the interim, the contract renewal has been discussed with the club administration. See how far it develops. I want to continue playing for Madrid. However, it isn’t just about me. I’ll just reiterate the game.
According to the Spanish newspaper AS, Real tried to maintain Asensio by lowering his pay. However, it is unclear if Asensio will consent or not. He has the option to ask his agency to choose a team if he doesn’t like Real’s offer. Asensio switched agents in April of last year, appointing Jorge Mendes to represent him.
However, Mendes—also known as Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent—failed to sign the Portuguese star to a club in Europe during the most recent transfer window. Ronaldo recently joined Al Nasr, a club in Saudi Arabia, with the aid of a different person.
