Real Madrid attacker’s renewal getting closer, club delighted with player’s commitment
After struggling with injuries in recent years, Marco Asensio has finally been able to revive his career, thanks to a relatively positive 2022/23 campaign.
His improved performances have been indicated by Real Madrid’s renewed faith in the player, which may end up landing the player a contract extension in the coming weeks.
According to Diario AS, Real Madrid are delighted with Asensio’s commitment to the club. The attacker is happy with the ‘number 12’ role he has been assigned by Carlo Ancelotti and is willing to continue at Santiago Bernabeu.
A few months ago, Asensio’s continuity seemed very uncertain and the player was even linked with a move to Barcelona. However, that has changed and it appears Real Madrid may soon hand him a new deal that will guarantee his continuity beyond 2024.
As per the report, Real Madrid have been making moves in their bid to renew the contract of Asensio. The deal is getting closer as the Spaniard has prioritised a renewal over other offers from European giants.
What is driving Asensio’s renewal efforts, is the simple fact that the player is keen on becoming a part of the Real Madrid squad in the years to come. Not to mention, he is not motivated by what the club offers him.
The Spaniard is more enthusiastic about the role Real Madrid are offering him. While there was initial doubt, the player is now happy with his current role in the team. He has featured in 42 competitive matches this season, racking up 11 goals and eight assists.
At 27, Real Madrid believe Asensio could be an excellent asset for the team in the years to come. His commitment to the Real Madrid project just adds the cherry on top, as the two parties look to reach an agreement in the coming weeks.

Official: Marco Asensio leaves Real Madrid on a free transfer
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.
