Marco Asensio is staring at an uncertain future at Real Madrid as his current contract with the club stands to expire at the end of the ongoing campaign.

While it had seemed certain at one point that he would leave as a free agent next summer, the Spanish winger put in some remarkable performances prior to the World Cup break. It prompted speculations that Los Blancos were considering offering him a new deal.

Asensio also had a decent showing at the FIFA World Cup with Spain, playing as a false-nine. Now back at the club and preparing for the restart of the season, the 26-year-old is unclear about what his future holds.

Several clubs, including arch-rivals Barcelona, are keeping tabs on Asensio’s contract situation at Real Madrid.

But, according to Edu Aguirre on El Chiringuito TV, manager Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff are very happy with Asensio. They have noticed a change in his approach in training sessions and are pleased with what they are seeing.

Asensio, thus far, has featured in 15 matches across all competitions for Real Madrid this season. He has contributed with three goals and three assists in the process, showing that he can contribute if given an opportunity.

With Eden Hazard expected to leave in the summer, the Merengues could be better served by holding onto Asensio as they would not want to deplete their attacking resources.

The Spaniard, who will be turning 27 next month, is in his prime years and can be an important player at the Santiago Bernabeu for a few more years.

With Ancelotti and the staff said to be happy with Asensio, whether it leads to a new contract offer for the winger will be interesting to see.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
