Marco Asensio will be leaving Real Madrid as a free agent at the end of his contract next month. The forward tried negotiating a new contract with the board, who were prepared to offer a better salary to him and also let him choose the length of the contract.
However, the main difference was over his importance in the first team, and that was the main reason behind the breakdown in negotiations. As a result, he is looking for a new challenge where he will get regular playing time and be able to have an important role in the squad.
Marco Asensio to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season – Aston Villa and PSG interested
Following their qualification for the Europa Conference League, Aston Villa will be reinforcing their squad to build on their success this past season. And Asensio could be a very shrewd signing, especially given that he will be available for free.
Although Villa have the likes of Emi Buendia and Leon Bailey in their squad, Marco Asensio is a versatile forward and will be able to play a variety of roles under Unai Emery. As a result, he could contribute significantly should he make the move.
The Premier League club have made their opening bid and want an answer from the player soon. They also face competition from PSG, who are in the market for a right-winger after the impending departure of Lionel Messi.
