Real Madrid misfit being eyed by several clubs over 2023 free transfer – Romano

The story of Marco Asensio’s decline at Real Madrid is gutting, to say the least. The Spaniard was touted to be the next big thing in Los Blancos’ forward trident but has quickly seen himself consigned to oblivion.

There was a cloud of uncertainty around the winger’s future throughout the summer transfer window but it ultimately resulted in him staying at the Bernabeu. However, it was clear by the beginning of September that the European champions had no intention of renewing his contract.

According to Fabrizio Romano, some clubs are already exploring the possibility of signing Asensio as a free agent for next summer. The player’s current deal with Real Madrid runs until the summer of 2023, after which he is set to leave the club.

The 26-year-old has found it difficult to see minutes this term and finds himself below Vinicius Jr, Karim Benzema, Rodrygo Goes, Eden Hazard and Federico Valverde in the pecking order. He has only played eight minutes in La Liga this season and just over half an hour in the UCL.

Earlier this week, he shut his critics with a fine goal against RB Leipzig in the Champions League. While his quality has never been in doubt, his demands for a salary raise are what broke his relationship with the Real Madrid board.

Asensio is expected to start on the bench for the Madrid Derby later today and it remains to be seen if he is given any minutes. Nevertheless, he has been called up for the Spain national team duty during the break and he will look to make a strong impression under Luis Enrique.

As things stand, though, Asensio’s time at Real Madrid could come to an end next year, with several clubs already snooping around to land him a free transfer in the summer of 2023.

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.
