With the final phase of the summer transfer window upon us, the focus at Real Madrid is largely on outcomings, with the Spanish and European champions taking care of the incoming transfers very early.

Marco Asensio is one such player who has been heavily linked with an exit this summer. However, as reported by MARCA, the 26-year-old Spanish winger remains keen on staying put at the Santiago Bernabeu, despite some ‘top-level teams’ making enquiries for him.

Asensio’s star has been on the wane ever since he returned from the long-term injury. However, he did show glimpses of form last season when he finished as the club’s third-highest goalscorer behind Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.

Despite that, he is no longer a regular in the side and having entered the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu, he refused to sign an extension. An exit looked very likely in the initial stages of the transfer window, with there being interest from the likes of AC Milan and Arsenal but nothing came of it.

As the window progressed, Asensio seems to have had a change of hearts and is now keen on staying put at Real Madrid. The 26-year-old Spanish international believes that he can still turn things around at the Bernabeu and become an important player for Carlo Ancelotti’s team.

Real Madrid, for their part, do not wish to hand Asensio a contract extension if he does end up staying at the club beyond the transfer window. In such a scenario, he would leave the club as a free agent next year. For now, though, all things point towards ex-Mallorca ace staying put at Madrid.

As Real Madrid gear up for their biggest test of the 2023/24 season so far against Atletico Madrid, manager Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list for the game at the Civitas Metropolitano.

The biggest news is the inclusion of star forward Vinicius Jr in the squad, with the Brazilian seemingly making an ultra-swift recovery from his injury to make himself available for the Madrid derby.

Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham also makes the squad list after there were some concerns about his situation as he had a stomach issue on Friday.

Arda Guler has trained with the team but is still not ready for his debut while Dani Carvajal also misses out with injury. Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao remain long-term absentees.

Ferland Mendy makes a return to the squad list for a La Liga match after having recovered fully from his injury.

Youngster Nico Paz is still missing due to a knock that led to his absence in the midweek Champions League clash against Union Berlin.
