At the end of the contract next June, the future of Marco Asensio is necessarily a central point for Real Madrid. While the extensions of Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos seem to have been recorded, the file of the Madrid number 11 would go in the opposite direction according to information from Report. Indeed, according to the Spanish outlet, Asensio is set to leave Real Madrid this summer for sporting reasons, with the right winger no longer feeling central to Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. Starting just 18 times in his 50 appearances this season, the 27-year-old was a substitute in all knockout matches in the Champions League, as well as the Copa del Rey semi-finals and finals.
Asked this winter by major European clubs, including PSG, Marco Asensio had not listened to these proposals because his first choice was Real Madrid. Proof that it is not a pecuniary matter, the player had received a second contract offer a month ago with a clear salary increase and a contract duration that he could decide. Disappointed to see that his coach did not rely on him more, especially in major events, the Spanish international (35 caps, 2 goals) would then have decided to pack up. He would now be listening to offers from big clubs in England and Italy, always fully on him. Having a player in his prime, author of 12 goals and 8 assists this season at Real Madrid, and all for free will necessarily be a great deal for the team that manages to attract him.
