Real Madrid are three games into their new season and Marco Asensio has only seen 12 minutes of action. After being completely benched for the first two games, the Spaniard was called on in the dying minutes against Celta Vigo.

His minimal involvement in the team dynamics is said to be owing to his uncertain future. Carlo Ancelotti has opted for even Federico Valverde ahead of the winger, thereby making a statement asking him to decide his future soon.

According to reports from MARCA, there are several teams interested in Asensio’s services. However, the player’s priority has always been to succeed at Real Madrid and it continues to be his sole focus.

When the manager was asked about the forward’s situation earlier this week, he was firm that the cards lay in Asensio’s hands.

“Asensio is a Madrid player and until that changes I will consider him as such and if he deserves to play, he will do so. We have to remember his contribution last year, he scored a lot of goals. We’ll have to wait until the 31st to see what happens and what decision he makes.”

AC Milan were best placed to sign the player earlier this summer, but their interest eventually cooled. At the moment, Manchester United are said to be considering the Spaniard’s signature.

While Real Madrid are open to offering him a new contract, Asensio demands a significant wage raise. Given that the player is not a regular starter, or a , the club are unwilling to make that accommodation.

    I think Real Madrid should also try and have some motivation to all players that loose their form whereas is known that they performed some quiet satisfaction spell with the team.There are some players who want their career to end in/with the club but it is only new competition that might be holding them back.we may see example from Ancelotti himself,he moved from the team because his services were nomore of the standard known of him but here he is again in Real Madrid performing wonders.Asensio needs some guidance on practicing valuable skills he posses,like shooting from range,as most of his goals were from a distant shooting.He still has capacity and capability,it is only the flactuation of dexterity values in human nature.

    He’s aware that he is not a top class player and will not succeed outside Real Madrid. Besides, clubs out there will not agree to paying him top dollar for his services. That’s why he’s demanding a better contract at Real and staying put.

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.
