Just when it appeared like Marco Asensio had salvaged his situation at Real Madrid, a new cloud of doubt has overshadowed his future. Not many expected Alvaro Rodriguez to have the impact he is having during his first games with the senior team, yet, the youngster has quickly established himself as the manager’s best bet on the bench.

After being snubbed by the manager during the game against Real Betis, Asensio is said to be angry with manager Carlo Ancelotti and is considering an exit, while being open to offers from Barcelona.

And according to reports from Gerard Romero, Asensio’s agent Jorge Mendes has offered his client’s services to Barcelona. The Catalans admire the 27-year-old for his versatility, as he can play on either wing, as an interior, or through the middle. However, talks are in a very rudimentary stage.

The Spaniard will be out of contract in the summer and a proposed move to Catalonia would thus be on a free transfer. However, it is also reported that Barcelona do not wish to interfere with Asensio’s future at Real Madrid and will only make a move if Los Blancos do not wish to renew him.

The young forward has made 18 league appearances this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists so far. He has created three big chances and averages 1 key pass per game.

Florentino Perez is said to be unhappy with Ancelotti’s decision to bench Asensio and has reportedly asked the manager to field him more. This development could potentially change the Spanish international’s situation, although the final decision still rests with the coach.

The coming weeks will be crucial in deciding Asensio’s future. If the 27-year-old can get back ahead of Alvaro Rodriguez, there is a good chance the club renews his deal. Else, he could join the exclusive club of players to have played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It is well known at this point that a lot will change at Real Madrid next season. Right from the system to the personnel available at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal, there will be modifications across the park at the Spanish capital.

Toni Kroos’ departure is indeed a big blow for Los Blancos, but they do have the resources available to partially fill the void the German superstar leaves.

Further, the arrival of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, needless to say, brings in exciting options on the field for Ancelotti’s side.

New captains

Nacho Fernandez, the team’s first captain, is also set to depart the Spanish capital this summer. Needless to say, the development has created doubts as to who will lead Los Blancos through the 2024/25 campaign.

As it stands, it will be Luka Modric who will serve as the team’s first captain next season replacing Nacho. At 38 years of age and with experience like none other under his belt, the honour is well deserved.

Dani Carvajal will serve as the second captain for Los Blancos, and with Modric likely to start on the bench often, will be the one to regularly don the armband for the men in white.

The third and fourth captains for next season will likely be Lucas Vazquez and Federico Valverde. As players who have spent a considerable amount of time at the club, they have imbibed the values Real Madrid demands and stand as the best-placed options.

Gunning for greatness

Real Madrid’s four captains for next season perfectly embody what the club stands for – sustained success and greatness.

Heading into the new season as the defending Spanish and European champions, Los Blancos will start as favourites across all competitions that they participate in.

With the likes of Modric and Carvajal serving as the leaders, one can say that the team is in safe hands and destined to reach new heights in 2024/25.
