Marco Asensio is one of several Real Madrid players whose contract expires at the end of the ongoing season. It has given way to continued speculations over the 27-year-old winger’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

While reports suggest that Real Madrid are certain about their intentions to renew the Spanish international, an agreement is yet to be reached.

And, according to SPORT, Barcelona are showing a keen interest in Asensio’s situation and have discussed the possibility of signing him with his agent, Jorge Mendes.

The 27-year-old Spaniard had teased a possible move to Camp Nou in the past, but was dismissed the rumours in a later interview. He has stated that he wishes to continue at Real Madrid beyond the current campaign.

However, an agreement over a new deal is yet to be reached, with the player and the club not on the same page when it comes to his wage demands.

And Barcelona are attentive to the situation and have spoken about a move for Asensio with his agent, Mendes.

The Portuguese representative has a strong relationship with Barça president Joan Laporta and is already helping them on the potential signing of Ruben Neves from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

And should Asensio do not renew with Real Madrid, Mendes could facilitate his move to Barcelona come summer.

As things stand, the report states that the former RCD Mallorca winger, who could have joined Barcelona in 2014, is yet to make a decision on his next move, even though he has insisted about wanting to remain at Real Madrid.

So, the possibility of a renewal is on the table, along with a move to Barcelona and even a transfer to the Premier League. Everything will depend on how the contract negotiations between the two parties proceed in the weeks to come.

A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has revealed that Lille have turned down a €50 million offer from Liverpool for Leny Yoro, a young player who is also a target for Real Madrid.

Yoro, who is just 18 years old, has caught the attention of several major European clubs during this summer’s transfer window. 

Among these clubs are Liverpool, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain, all eager to sign the talented centre-back from Lille. However, they are all competing with Real Madrid, who are also very interested in Yoro.

According to sources in England, Lille recently rejected Liverpool’s offer of €50 million for the player. 

While this amount is close to what Lille have been asking for, they have set a price tag of €60 million and are in no mood to lower their demands.

Real Madrid continue to lead the race

The main challenge for clubs interested in Yoro is that many believe he has already decided to join Real Madrid

Despite this, Real Madrid have not made a formal move to negotiate with Lille, as they are unwilling to meet the €60 million asking price.

In the meantime, other clubs hoping to sign Yoro are relying on the chance that he might reconsider and choose a different team over Real Madrid. 

Liverpool, in particular, have been doubtful about their chances of securing Yoro, mainly because of Real Madrid’s interest.

Yoro wants Real Madrid

Discussions about Yoro have been widespread recently, with many suggesting that the player is aware of Real Madrid’s interest and is waiting for them to prioritise his transfer. 

However, the main sticking point remains Lille’s demand and Real Madrid, knowing that Yoro’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, are not willing to pay that much.

Given that Yoro has only one year left on his contract after this summer, Real Madrid are reluctant to enter a bidding war and pay more than they think is reasonable. 

Reports indicate that Real Madrid are not prepared to offer more than €30 million for the player.
