Marco Asensio has been a player in demand in this summer window with various top clubs looking to lure the Spanish winger. The latest club in Serie A champions AC Milan who has submitted a €25 million offer for the 26-year-old. But reportedly, Los Blancos are not happy with the offer that Milan has presented. They feel Asensio is worth much more. The reported fee that the Spanish champions want is around €30 million.
Asensio’s time at Real Madrid seems to be over. Moreover, the Spaniard has not been offered a new contract by the European champions. It comes as a surprise as this season was Asensio’s most productive season in his 7 years in the capital. Despite this, he always was a backup option to Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior. The Spanish winger scored 12 times this season but still has a cloud of uncertain future over him.
The contract situation at Real Madrid has got many clubs offering for Asensio. Most notable of them are Arsenal, Manchester United and AC Milan. Arsenal has provided a better offer to the Los Blancos, offering €40 million in response to Milan’s €30 million. But the Serie A side is desperate to strengthen their attacking unit in order to defend their Serie A title. With Junior Messias and Saelemaekers underperforming, Asensio can be an answer to Milan’s right-wing issues.
Real Madrid Stick To Their Asking Price For Asensio
It is easier said than done for Milan as Real Madrid will not be lowering their asking price for the Spaniard. They are sticking to the €30 million prices and Milan have to raise their offer in order to sign Asensio. With Arsenal also in the picture, Milan will have to make a decision fast. The Rossoneri can be a serious force to reckon with next season if they do end up getting the 26-year-old Spanish winger.
The demand for Asensio has been quite a bit with many clubs eager to land him knowing what he can offer. Mikel Arteta will also be pushing to lure the Spaniard away from Milan. The clubs are yet to decide on an agreement over him but one thing is clear: this may just be Asensio’s last season for Los Blancos.
