Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio is most likely heading towards an exit. The 27-year-old, whose contract will expire at the end of the season, is currently the third option for Carlo Ancelotti on the right wing behind Rodrygo and Federico Valverde.

For a 27-year-old professional, it is safe to say that the situation is not ideal, to say the very least, meaning that the most obvious thing to do now is to think of an exit route. After all, Asensio has won everything with Real Madrid.

Given his experience, it is understood that it will not be hard for Asensio to find a new suitor. In fact, he might not have to leave Spain, if Barcelona sort out a few things from their end.

By now, Barcelona’s interest in Asensio is no more a secret. This largely comes down to the fact that he is set to become a free agent in the summer and given their financial state, the Blaugrana are looking to acquire those who end their contract at the end of the season.

According to Mundo Deportivo, those sitting in the Camp Nou offices really like Asensio and his approach. They believe the player can absorb any kind of pressure and, on top of everything, is a proven winner. 

Furthermore, the fact that the player has recently joined forces with super agent Jorge Mendes is a great plus for the Blaugrana since they share a great working relationship with the agent.

Interestingly enough, although Asensio represents a great market opportunity, Barcelona already have as many as three players fighting for the right-wing spot, namely, Ousmane Dembele, Raphinha and Ferran Torres. 

This means that before allowing any incoming, the team from Catalonia will have to allow an exit and if recent reports are to be believed, Ferran Torres could be a casualty in the summer.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
