Marco Asensio finds himself in a tough situation at Real Madrid. The Spanish international refused to sign a new contract with the club earlier this year and tried to engineer a transfer away in the summer but ended up staying as he could not find his desired move.

Having remained at the club, Asensio has fallen to the bottom of the attacking pecking order at Real Madrid, with manager Carlo Ancelotti hardly calling on the 26-year-old in the new campaign.

Indeed, the former RCD Mallorca ace has played just 17 minutes of football so far this season and is no longer a key cog in the side.

Asensio has grown frustrated at his situation in the Spanish capital and let it out on the touchline this past Sunday when he reacted angrily to being overlooked for substitution.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the 26-year-old forward is expected to leave Real Madrid eventually. However, according to fresh reports, Asensio might not have to wait until the summer of 2023 to secure an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Indeed, as relayed by SPORT, Asensio could be offered an escape route from Real Madrid as early as January, as Liverpool, Arsenal and AC Milan are all interested in signing the 26-year-old.

The trio of mentioned clubs had expressed an interest in the Spanish international during the summer window as well, but a move had not materialised, possibly due to Real Madrid’s asking price for him.

However, come January, he will be in the final six months of his contract and Los Blancos could decide to accept whatever they get for him rather than losing him for nothing at the end of the season.

Once touted as the future of Real Madrid, Asensio has failed to hit the heights expected of him, especially after the serious injury he suffered a few years ago.

With his prospects at the Bernabeu looking bleak, an exit during the winter would be welcome from his perspective. Real Madrid also would rake in some cash from his departure and not see him depart as a free agent in the summer of 2023.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
