With Marco Asensio set to leave Real Madrid as a free agent at the end of the season, the interest in the Spanish winger is spiking.

Earlier reports had stated that AC Milan, Juventus, and Aston Villa were some of the clubs in the hunt for his signing. PSG had also been reported as suitors, with it being suggested that the French giants were already in advanced talks to sign him.

However, now, according to Alberto Pereiro of Onda Cero, apart from AC Milan and PSG, Arsenal have also entered the race to sign Asensio when he leaves Real Madrid this summer.

This is not the first time that Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Spanish international. Having missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City, manager Mikel Arteta is looking to add more quality to his attacking unit.

At the same time, he also wants to have better alternatives for his primary options on the flanks in Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

As such, Asensio has seemingly emerged as an option for the Premier League runners-up.

A move to the Emirates could appeal to Asensio given that they were one of the best teams in England this season, will be playing Champions League football, and have a good project that is headed in the right direction.

On top of that, the success that Martin Odegaard has achieved after trading Real Madrid for Arsenal could also entice him.

But whether they would be in a position to offer what the cash-rich PSG might throw his way could decide the fate of the transfer race.

An announcement about Asensio’s exit could be made as early as this week, while Real Madrid are also hoping to resolve the futures of Nacho and Dani Ceballos imminently.

Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
