Marco Asensio is soon set to confirm his new destination this summer, with David Ornstein claiming that the Real Madrid forward is closing in on a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Athletic journalist suggests Asensio has decided to join the French giants ahead of the new season. He has accepted a long-term agreement with the club and will arrive at Parc des Princes on a free transfer.

The news of Asensio’s imminent move to PSG came shortly after head coach Christophe Galtier confirmed Lionel Messi will leave the club, amid interest from Barcelona and Saudi Arabian clubs.

Ornstein adds that Asensio has yet to sign a contract at PSG, but the talks are likely to be concluded after Real Madrid’s final league game against Athletic Club on Sunday.

Asensio’s likely exit could serve as a major blow for Los Blancos, who have been trying hard to maintain depth in the attacking unit, especially amid rumours linking Karim Benzema with a move to Saudi Arabia.

Although Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Liverpool star Roberto Firmino, Asensio’s exit would force them to go after a new creative attacker as well.

During his long spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, Asensio had built a solid reputation for himself, racking up 61 goals and 32 assists in 285 competitive appearances. He has been particularly impressive this season, having been involved in 20 goals in all competitions.

With him out, Real Madrid will be heavily reliant on the services of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Federico Valverde. They may even rely on Jude Bellingham for creative services, provided the Borussia Dortmund starlet joins the team ahead of the new season.

As for PSG, this could be the first of many signings, as the club look to undergo a massive squad overhaul this summer.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
