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.

If there’s one thing to note about Karim Benzema’s career trajectory, it is that he has only improved over time.

Just last season, the French international enjoyed his finest individual campaign till date, with 44 goals and 15 assists in all competitions.

However, a question mark lingers around the club captain’s future, with his current contract set to expire next summer. A new update has emerged around the Los Blancos legend’s contractual situation, which is set to put a smile on every Madridista’s face.

As per the latest information provided by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano on the ‘Here We Go’ podcast, Karim Benzema’s contract renewal with the European champions is imminent.

Despite turning 35 in December this year, the veteran remains in the conversation for being the best striker in the world, alongside Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski.

So much so that the five-time Champions League winner is the favourite to win his first-ever Ballon d’Or later this year.

Whilst Benzema has suffered a knee injury this term, he has still managed to register three goals in five league starts.

With all signs pointing to the Los Merengues icon still being at the peak of his powers, it only makes sense why the club are intending on tying him down to a brand-new deal.

Alongside Vinicius Jr., Karim Benzema has managed to form the deadliest forward duo in Europe since the start of the 2021/22 campaign. And considering Real Madrid’s aim to triumph on multiple fronts for the upcoming seasons, it is vital that the experienced goalscorer stays put at the club.

Despite the successful coup of Aurelien Tchouameni, handing Benzema a fresh contract may be the club’s signing of the season.
