After reports emerged that Alex Baena had filed a complaint against Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde for assaulting him, the former’s club, Villarreal, have officially confirmed those claims to be true.

After last night’s La Liga encounter between Real Madrid and Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu, Valverde punched Baena in the bus park area, allegedly angered by the 21-year-old’s derogatory comments over his wife’s pregnancy complications.

Villarreal had confirmed earlier today that they were not filing a complaint against Valverde, but would support if Baena decided to do so. And the midfielder has now indeed proceeded to file assault charges against the Real Madrid star with the National Police.

“Álex Baena suffered an assault last night while on his way to the team’s bus after the match against Real Madrid. Faced with this situation, the player has decided to file a complaint against the aggressor with the National Police,” Villarreal’s official statement read.

Carrusel Deportivo reports that Baena decided to file the complaint against Valverde after visiting a hospital today and receiving reports of the injuries he suffered as a result of the Real Madrid ace’s action.

Even though Baena has filed a complaint with the police, it does not mean that Valverde will not face sporting sanctions, reports Isaac Fouto of COPE.

However, he does add that the sanctions could arrive for next season as had been in the case of Sergio Leon for an incident involving a fan in the past.

Real Madrid have officially announced that winger Marco Asensio will be leaving the club as a free agent at the end of the season. The Spaniard was between a contract extension and departure for a very long time, and eventually decided it was best for him to leave.

Asensio joined Madrid eight years ago, as a 20-year-old, and was loaned out to Espanyol during his first season in the top flight, where he scored four goals and gave ten assists across 34 appearances.

He has since been a key member of Real Madrid’s team, often dropping in and out of starting lineups, though. During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Asensio has won three UEFA Champions Leagues, four FIFA Club World Cups, three La Ligas, and three European Super Cups.

“Real Madrid fans will never forget their path and their exemplary behaviors during all this time. Madrid is, and will always be, his home,” the farewell announcement said.

Now, rumours suggest that Asensio will heading to Paris to join PSG on a Bosman move.
