Journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Real Madrid are very happy with the impact of Marco Asensio and there will be a new round of talks where his extension will be discussed.

There was a time when Asensio was expected to leave the team as a free agent. The 27-year-old’s deal expires at the end of the season and several media reports suggested that the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona were very much interested in his acquisition.

As it turns out, while the Spaniard did not have much of an impact earlier in the season, his influence grew over the past couple of months, as he has been among goals quite a lot recently. 

In fact, in his last four appearances, he has scored two goals and also has an assist to his name. This includes a recent wondergoal against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie.

Regarding his future, Romano, speaking in his Here We Go podcast, has affirmed that Madrid have already offered him a new deal already and a new round of talks will happen soon.

When asked why Asensio’s future is still in the open, the journalist explained, 

“Yes, it is because he is under contract until the end of the season and at the moment, nothing is complete. But as we have already mentioned, Real Madrid have offered him a new deal. It was a few weeks ago.”

He added that unlike Asensio’s state of affiars, Madrid are willing to wait until the end of the season to resolve the contractual situation of others.

“On the other hand, with other players, likes [Dani] Ceballos and [Luka] Modric, Madrid are waiting until the end of the season. Modric 100% wants to stay, but with Asensio, there is a conversation, a negotiation as the team is really happy with the impact he has made.

“The negotiation will continue soon and there will be a new round of talks for Asensio to continue at Real Madrid,” he concluded.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
