There are plenty of transfer sagas that have been happening in the Real Madrid world recently. First, it was the whole Erling Haaland situation, the Kylian Mbappe situation, then the focus shifted on to Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni.
Now, as it stands, the saga revolves around Marco Asensio’s future.
I’ve been very, very vocal about my thoughts on Marco Asensio as a footballer. I think that he was a very good player for Real Madrid during his first two seasons at the club, but after that, inconsistency and injuries played their part, and now, Asensio is simply not good enough to start for Real Madrid.
Whenever he’s on the pitch, he doesn’t do a lot, and even though he scores a few goals every now and then, it’s just not what we want from a player that is supposed to be fighting for the starting spot.
I feel like Real feel the same way, because according to Deportes COPE, Real have no intentions of offering a contract extension to Asensio.
Liverpool and Milan are interested in signing Marco Asensio, per report
Asensio says that regularity is very important to him, and I don’t know, it just feels like Asensio had fallen out of favour after the second leg of the PSG tie. Since then, he’s had few starts and another bunch of off-the-bench appearances.
I can’t say that I don’t see why Ancelotti dropped him. Rodrygo and Fede Valverde are simply better options for that position, and they are probably going to be the same for next year as well.
I understand that Asensio wants to play regularly, and I want him at a club where he would be able to do that. I genuinely want him to succeed, but I just don’t think Real Madrid is where that will happen. The club needs to let him go and then sign a replacement as soon as possible, because having just one right-winger isn’t the best idea.
Asensio would probably succeed at a club where he plays more centrally, and Milan could be that club. I don’t see the fit at Liverpool, mostly because of how intense Liverpool are off the ball as well as on it, and Asensio is pretty passive, most of the time, at least at Real.

Milan could be the team that could offer him a starting role as well as give him a central position, because they generally use a 4-2-3-1, and the CAM spot is currently occupied by an off-beat Brahim Diaz. Let’s see what the future holds for Asensio, but, with all due respect, I think it’s time for him to leave the club.
