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.
