Real Madrid set to open renewal talks with out-of-favour winger

After a topsy-turvy summer transfer window, Marco Asensio eventually ended up staying at Real Madrid, for the 2022/23 season, at least. The Spaniard was linked with a move away in light of his expiring contract, and wanted a considerable salary hike to put pen to paper.

Asensio’s delicate contractual situation found some consequences on the pitch, as well. Across 16 games so far this season, he has started just the one – in the Champions League vs RB Leipzig with Federico Valverde and Rodrygo far ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, it seems Real Madrid want the player to stay anyway, and are planning to open renewal talks with the winger soon, as per a report by MARCA.

Asensio has found himself in the links for a while now, with teams like Manchester United and Liverpool rumoured to be interested. Most surprisingly, Barcelona are also reportedly interested in the Madrid forward, especially since he will not cost a penny in the summer of ’23.

That said, Asensio has made it clear, on and off record that his priority is to stay at Real Madrid for the forseeable future. While his game-time situation is far from ideal right now, the Spanish international is not contemplating a move away.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
