According to MARCA, Real Madrid have tabled a contract offer to winger Marco Asensio and have been able to reach a partial agreement with the winger on the proposal.

The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has maintained that he wishes to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu despite rumours of a move to Barcelona doing the rounds constantly.

However, the report from the Spanish publication claims that talks are already underway over a new contract for the attacker and the two parties have come to an agreement on certain aspects of the deal, but some issues are yet to be resolved.

As per the report, Real Madrid and Asensio are in agreement when it comes to the duration of the contract. Both want to continue the partnership and it is said that a four-year extension until 2027 has been offered by the club, which the winger is willing to accept.

However, when it comes to the wages, there is still some disagreement as Asensio is seeking more than what Real Madrid are currently offering him.

The report states that the Spanish international plans to get married on July 7 in Mallorca and wants his future resolved before that.

In a recent media interaction, the winger had spoken about his future, saying: “Things are being discussed, we’ll see where it goes. I’m focused on myself and the next game. Hopefully, everything will come to fruition.

“I want to renew and stay at Madrid for a long time, but it’s not something that depends only on me. For me, the most important thing is sporting matters and being happy.”

Whether the two parties are able to resolve the financial difference that exists between them in the coming months will decide the fate of Asensio.

The forward, who turned 27 earlier this month, has featured 22 times across all competitions this season. He has scored three goals and set up five more from those appearances.

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.
