Real Madrid winger lashes out on the touchline after being ignored for substitution

Real Madrid came back from a goal down to secure a hard-fought victory over RCD Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday afternoon.

The Bernabeu rejoiced at the win while the players seemingly enjoyed themselves despite there being moments when tempers flared on the pitch.

But, one Real Madrid star who cut a frustrated figure on the day was Marco Asensio. Coming up against his former team, the 26-year-old winger was hoping to get some game-time but had to watch on from the sidelines as Carlo Ancelotti did not deem it necessary to call on him.

Asensio’s anger boiled over in the second period when he was overlooked by the manager after Lucas Vazquez picked up an injury. Ancelotti threw on Dani Carvajal in place of the injured Spaniard, which drew a fiery reaction from Asensio.

As reported by MARCA, the former RCD Mallorca ace got up from where he was seated and threw his bib to the ground in anger before kicking a water bottle as he expressed his frustration over the lack of game-time coming towards him.

Asensio has fallen to the bottom of the pecking order in Real Madrid’s attacking department. The Spaniard had been informed about his standing well ahead of the season and was made available for a transfer. However, a lack of offers to his preference saw the winger stay put.

But, having remained at the club, Asensio has played just 17 minutes of football so far for Real Madrid, featuring for seven minutes against Celta Vigo in La Liga and ten minutes in the Champions League clash versus Celtic.

It will be interesting to see what Ancelotti makes of the Spanish international’s angry reaction on the touchline during the Mallorca clash.

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.
