Marco Asensio is one of several Real Madrid players whose contract expires at the end of the season on June 30. With only a few months left for it to happen, the Merengues are starting to make movements to tie up the futures of the players they want to retain.

And, according to MARCA, Real Madrid wish to keep hold of Asensio beyond this season and have sent him an offer for a renewal already.

The 27-year-old seemed to have one foot outside the door at the start of the season, but has managed to turn things around at the Santiago Bernabeu. Even though he is not a guaranteed starter, the Spanish forward has gained more prominence in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup of late.

It has prompted Florentino Perez & co. to send in an offer to extend his contract, with the proposal already tabled to Asensio and his agent, Jorge Mendes.

The report also adds that apart from Real Madrid, the former RCD Mallorca ace has several other offers at hand. However, his preference is to continue with Los Blancos and achieve more success with the club.

Real Madrid, Asensio and Mendes are set to hold talks over the matter in the coming week. While it has previously been reported that the winger is seeking a bigger contract offer from the club, MARCA reports that monetary objectives are secondary for the winger.

Instead, what matters for Asensio at the moment is his role within the team, which will be discussed in the said meeting. It is claimed that the winger’s future will be resolved in the next 2-3 weeks.

Asensio has featured 23 times across all competitions, scoring three goals and setting up five more. The Spaniard has shown that he can be a valuable part of the team and if all goes well, he could end up signing a new contract.

Official: Real Madrid starting lineup against Elche

The Santiago Bernabeu is ready for the first time in a fortnight as Real Madrid are set to host relegation-threatened Real Valladolid for gameweek 27 of La Liga. The gap between them and Barcelona was increased to 15 yesternight, and los blancos will be looking to cut it down to 12 to scarce the tiniest bit of hope of defending their league crown.

Carlo Ancelotti has opted to use a highly attacking starting lineup for the clash, with Karim Benzema spearheading the front-three. He is flanked by Marco Asensio on the right while Vinicius Jr retains his place on the left.

Rodrygo also gets the nod to start, probably as an attacking midfielder in what looks like a 4-2-3-1.

Aurelien Tchouameni has been given the nod in midfield, with Toni Kroos forming the double pivot alongside him.

With Antonio Rudiger, Ferland Mendy, and Nacho out injured, Eduardo Camavinga gets the license to start as the left-back, while Lucas Vazquez flanks the defence from the right. The usual suspects — Eder Militao and David Alaba — start in central defence.

Thibaut Courtois was a doubt heading into this game, but has been given the medical greenlight to take his place as the goalkeeper.

Madrid XI: Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga; Tchouameni, Kroos; Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius; Benzema
