Marco Asensio is saying goodbye to Real Madrid at the end of the season after the club and the player failed to agree on a new contract.
The Spanish striker’s contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of June, despite the club’s wish for the footballer to remain their member, but the two sides were unable to find a common language, as the footballer reportedly rejected all offers, Spanish media reported today.
Asensio spent seven years at the Santiago Bernabeu after joining the Madrid team from Mallorca in 2014. During this period, he won as many as 17 laurels with them, including three Spanish championship titles, and he was also happy to win three times with them in the Champions League and the European Super Cup.
The twenty-seven-year-old was an important member of the coach’s team Carlo Ancelotti also in this season, as he made 50 appearances for it, scoring 12 goals and eight assists. As reported by The Athletic, quite a few English Premier League clubs are seriously interested in Asensio, and he is said to be of great interest to Italian clubs as well.
