Marco Asensio’s future remains up in the air, with there currently being no concrete talks over an extension at Real Madrid. The player’s deal runs out at the end of the season, and there is a chance that he could walk out as a free agent.
He has been offered a contract worth €4 million by Los Blancos, but he is not satisfied with the financial offer since he wants a better pay worth around €6 million. As a result, he hasn’t accepted their offer and is holding out for another go at negotiations.
Marco Asensio contract talks to reach important juncture soon
The player has been linked with a move to Barcelona, but has reiterated that his loyalty is with Real Madrid. Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea are also interested, but are not convinced that he will want to leave Spain.
This season, Marco Asensio has scored some important goals for the club, with his total tally being seven goals and three assists across all competitions. He is being regularly rotated by Carlo Ancelotti, with Fede Valverde often being used as a right winger.
As a result, the attacking midfielder still needs to put up a fight to ensure that he is getting regular minutes. It remains to be seen whether a lucrative financial offer will be enough to get him to leave Spain. A decision will have to be made soon, since there are only three more months till the season is over.
