Marco Asensio is one of several Real Madrid players whose contract expires at the end of the season. The 27-year-old has been, at best, used as a rotation player by Carlo Ancelotti this term but he has shown that he can add value to the team.

With reports suggesting that the atmosphere in the locker room is not good due to the uncertainty about the contract situations, it is important that Real Madrid start taking steps to address the matter.

Now, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic is reporting that Real Madrid have already tabled a contract offer for Asensio, but the Spanish international is not satisfied by the terms being proposed by the club.

While the aforementioned report does not get into the details of the offer that Los Blancos have sent towards Asensio, it has previously been reported that the deal proposed was worth around €4 million per year, but the winger was seeking around €6 million-a-year.

In 34 matches across all competitions this term, Asensio has scored seven goals and set up five more. But it must be noted that of his 34 appearances, only seven of them have been starts in La Liga.

The winger has previously stated that he desires to remain at Real Madrid beyond the current campaign. But with his role being diminished and the contract offer not satisfying him, the doors for an exit remain open.

In such a scenario, there is unlikely to be any shortage of suitors for Asensio. The former RCD Mallorca ace has been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United in the past while in Italy, clubs like AC Milan and Juventus also are options.

It remains to be seen if the two parties are able to reach some sort of compromise over the coming months. But as things stand, Asensio is not happy with the terms of the deal offered to him, which could lead to an exit.

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
