According to a fresh report from SPORT, Real Madrid will consider the possibility of offering a new contract to Marco Asensio after the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Asensio is in the final year of his contract with Los Blancos and talks over a new deal have stalled for a long time now.

Indeed, as per the report, Real Madrid have not made any contract proposal to the 26-year-old after he joined hands with superagent Jorge Mendes in the summer in order to secure a move away from the club in search of a better wage packet and increased prominence in the team.

But a move failed to materialise and Asensio was forced to stay at Real Madrid. The Spanish international has not been used much by manager Carlo Ancelotti, with the winger largely restricted to substitute appearances.

While he has made 10 appearances across all competitions. the former RCD Mallorca ace has played for a total of 114 minutes only, during which he has also scored a couple of goals, one of which came last night against Elche.

Following the match, Ancelotti insisted that he still has faith in Asensio and added that the winger could play more regularly moving forward.

And now, SPORT is claiming that Real Madrid could consider the possibility of offering a new contract to the 26-year-old, but only after the FIFA World Cup is out of the way.

It is claimed that manager Ancelotti is endorsing Asensio’s continuity at the Santiago Bernabeu, although in case an offer is made, the new contract would not be dissimilar to his current one, with respect to his wages.

There have been shock links to arch-rivals Barcelona, who seem to be interested in signing Asensio on a free transfer next summer. So, it will be intriguing to see what the future holds for the 26-year-old.

For now, he will continue to push for increased involvement under Ancelotti and hope to have a good World Cup with Spain.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
