Marco Asensio’s future has become a topic of daily discussion in recent weeks. With Real Madrid looking to bring in several key players in the current transfer window, his possible departure is an opportunity to recover some funds.

The Spaniard is one of the few expendable assets in the club who has not only a high market value but also several interested suitors.

At the same time, he is a valuable resource for Carlo Ancelotti to incorporate in his plans at the club. This has created a dilemma as to whether Los Blancos should sell him or extend his contract.

According to reports from GOAL, AC Milan are interested in picking up Asensio’s services for the coming season. Paolo Maldini is said to be a big fan of the forward, and the Serie A champions look to incorporate the player as a ‘gift’ to their manager.

The one hurdle in his possible move to Milan is the economic factor. While Real Madrid ask €40 million for their star, the Italians are only willing to pay €30 million.

As it stands, Los Blancos have not officially offered Asensio a new contract. However, part of the reason for the club’s hesitation is that the player expects a raise in salary if he signs a new deal.

The 26-year-old played 31 games for Carlo Ancelotti’s side last season and scored ten goals in the process. Despite making a strong start to his campaign, his stocks fell towards the end of the season as he was replaced by Rodrygo.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
