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.
