Karim Benzema has taken the world by storm and is single-handedly carrying Real Madrid’s forward line at the moment. Further, the support from Vinicius Jr on the left wing has been a useful resource for Ancelotti’s side.
However, no player has been able to claim the right-wing position as their own. Rodrygo and Marco Asensio are the players who have been granted the most opportunities to impress but have both struggled.
With a major revamp planned for the summer, shipping out the deadwood becomes important for Los Blancos. One of the players considered transferable by the La Liga leaders is Asensio.
According to reports from Daniele Longo, AC Milan are in constant contact with the Spanish international and are planning a move for him in June. It is said that the Italians have been scouting the player for over a year.
The Milan based side recently sent a representative to talk to Asensio’s father in Madrid, further cementing the rumours of their interest. However, there are several teams in the Premier League keeping tabs on the forward too.
The 26-year-old has played in 25 La Liga games this season, scoring eight goals and creating one big chance. Despite his ability to score goals out of difficult positions, the player is deemed transferable because of his inconsistency.
Los Blancos value Asensio at around €25 million euros, a reasonable fee in today’s inflated market. Given that two of AC Milan’s forwards, Ibrahimovic and Giroud, are in the final years of their careers, the Italians will be tempted to go all out to sign the Spaniard.
€85 million-rated Serie A winger ‘dreams’ of playing for Real Madrid, claims father
Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of playing for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the winger’s father has revealed following the UEFA Champions League clash between the two teams last night.
Kvaratskhelia, 22, exploded upon arriving at Napoli last year, leading them to the Serie A title on the back of his explosive performances.
The Georgian winger has been impressing in the ongoing campaign as well, although he failed to score or assist in either of Napoli’s meetings with Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages.
Kvaratskhelia has previously spoken about how he has always been a lifelong supporter of Real Madrid and grew up idolising some of the club’s legends like Cristiano Ronaldo and Guti, among others.
Now, the 22-year-old winger’s father has revealed that his son has always dreamt of and continues to dream of playing for Real Madrid.
As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Kvaratskhelia’s father said: “Khvicha always dreamed and still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I am sure about it.”
Talking about the fact that the winger got to play against Real Madrid, Kvaratskhelia’s father added: “For Khvicha, playing vs Real Madrid was special. In my family, everyone is a Real Madrid supporter, except me.”
Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements, but they are looking for a centre-forward next summer and have Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as their main targets.
As for Kvaratskhelia, whose market value stands at €85 million, it seems quite apparent that he harbours dreams of playing for Real Madrid. But it remains to be seen if there is some interest from Los Blancos in signing the winger.
