Super-agent advises Real Madrid winger to skip pre-season if he is not offered new deal

The situation of Marco Asensio at Real Madrid is extremely complicated, to say the least. The club have not placed any solid offer on the table to renew the forward’s contract, but at the same time have not completely discarded him from next season’s plans.

It has been rumoured that Los Blancos will extend his contract if he is willing to accept the same wages as he earns at present. This is, however, impossible from the player’s side as he fees he deserves a raise on his new deal.

According to reports from Diario AS, Asensio’s agent Jorge Mendes does not see two ways about the situation. In his head, the player should not attend pre-season with Carlo Ancelotti’s side if he does not receive a good renewal offer from the club.

At the moment, several Premier League giants, including Liverpool and Manchester United are said to be interested in signing Asensio. With his future at Real Madrid looking mote bleak with every passing day, the English clubs will look to swiftly swoop in.

Ahead of the two English giants, though, AC Milan are seriously interested in signing Asensio on a permanent transfer.

There is only one year left on the Spaniard’s deal with Madrid. If the club decide against renewing the winger, they will be under pressure to sell him and avoid losing him on a free transfer next June.

Asensio found the back of the net ten times in 31 league appearances last season. However, he lost his footing and eventually his place in the team to Rodrygo Goes late in the season. Needless to say, he is not a guaranteed starter heading into the 2022-23 period.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
