Life for contract rebels is not easy if they fail to find a new club. Marco Asensio finds himself in a similar situation at Real Madrid after refusing to sign a new deal with the club.

According to reports from El Partidazo de Cope Asensio believes that he has not played a single minute against Eintracht Frankfurt and UD Almeria due to a decision of the club and not Ancelotti.

The winger was offered a renewal by the club but declined it as he felt he deserved a higher salary. While no official proposal was made by Real Madrid, they now refuse to negotiate with the player.

When asked about the forward’s future after his sides win over Almeria, Carlo Ancelotti said,

“As long as Asensio is a Real Madrid player, he will be an important player.”

Yet, the manager’s actions have been contradictory to his words. It remains to be seen if he counts on Asensio in future games, but he has not even called the player off the bench in the last two matches.

Last season, the Spaniard made 31 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid, scoring ten goals in the process. In the Champions League, he scored one goal and provided two assists in eight appearances.

Fifteen days remain in the transfer window and Asensio could still look for a way out of Real Madrid. He is now in the final year of his contract and will be a free agent in June, easing potential negotiations over a transfer.

Replacing Luka Modric is a task Real Madrid’s administration better not attempt. After all, finding a like-for-like replacement for a world-class player who defined an era is close to impossible.

The Croat himself, however, has always held high regard for his compatriot Marcelo Brozovic. The Inter Milan player possesses a profile that highly interests Los Blancos and Carlo Ancelotti.

Brozovic has been on the transfer lists of several European clubs in the current transfer window. Of them, Barcelona have been mentioned as a strong candidate.

Though Nerazzurri were initially reluctant to let the midfielder go, Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport report that Inter Milan are now prepared to take that step at the end of the season.

The Italian management understands that the manager has modes to cope without Brozovic and that the time is right to move on with economic compensation.

One of the biggest names in the race to sign him, according to the source, is Real Madrid. Given that he has a contract until 2026 in Italy, the European Champions will have to shell out at least €30 million for his services, a figure that Inter feel he should be valued at.

The Merengues are not alone in the race for Brozovic. Barcelona are back in the equation as they see him as an ideal replacement for their captain Sergio Busquets.

The third European giants interested in the 30-year-old Croatian international are Chelsea. Juventus also wanted to try their luck too but were forced to back out after their recent sanctions.

It remains to be seen if Real Madrid can afford the €30 million tag in the summer given their interest in Jude Bellingham. Close to €150 million of their budget will be frozen on the Englishman, and spending more on another midfielder may not be warranted.
