Even though there is just a week remaining until the transfer window slams to a shut, we may expect considerable activity from Real Madrid as they look to finalise their squad by the end of the month.

In terms of incoming transfers, there might not be much activity. However, according to El Chiringuito, the club are in contention to offload a few star players in the final week of the transfer window.

One of the players poised to leave Santiago Bernabeu in the coming days is Marco Asensio, who is a target for Premier League giants Manchester United and Arsenal.

The report suggests both the English clubs are keeping tabs on the Real Madrid attacker in this final week of the transfer market. Once regarded as one of the future leaders of Real Madrid’s creative force, Asensio’s rapid fall from grace over the past couple of years has been well documented.

The versatile attacker has struggled with fitness, form and a lack of game-time. In the current Real Madrid setup, he has fallen behind the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo in the pecking order, and his chances of remaining a first-team regular in the new season are close to none.

With that in mind, Real Madrid are open to sanctioning his sale before the transfer market comes to a close at the end of this month.

Unfortunately for Los Blancos, they have not been able to find a club willing to take the gamble on Asensio. So the recent interest from Manchester United and Arsenal is rather intriguing and a potential indicator that the Premier League might be sensing a market opportunity.

Arsenal are on the lookout for a wide player to replace Nicolas Pepe, who is set to leave on loan. As for Manchester United, they could see Asensio as a Plan B if they miss out top target Antony, who is proving to be quite expensive.

It is well established that Asensio is a talented individual, with significant experience at the highest level of football.

But in light of his recent struggles, coupled with the incoming deadline day, there might be an opportunity for these two English giants to snap him up for a cut-price deal this summer, more so given his contract expires next year.

Spain will begin their UEFA Euro 2024 journey in a little over an hour with a clash against Croatia at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Ahead of the match, Luis de la Fuente has announced the starting lineup that will be taking the field for La Roja and two Real Madrid stars feature in the team.

Indeed, Los Blancos’ captain Nacho Fernandez gets the nod as one of the centre-backs amid some injury concerns for Spain.

Meanwhile, Dani Carvajal holds on to his usual place as the right-back for La Roja against Croatia.

There is no place in the starting lineup for Real Madrid forward Joselu, though, with De la Fuente preferring Alvaro Morata as his No. 9 instead.

While Croatia are yet to announce their starting lineup, it is all but certain that Real Madrid midfielder and legend Luka Modric will be in the team and will be captaining them against two of his club teammates today.
