Real Madrid demand £35m for Marco Asensio

Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio is valued at £35million.

Despite his early potential at the Santiago Bernabeu, the playmaker was gradually demoted to a squad player rather than a first-team regular.

Carlo Ancelotti favors other players, as shown by the fact that just 21 of his 39 La Liga and Champions League appearances came from the starting line-up last season.

With just one year left on his contract, there is still talk that the Spain international could be allowed to leave the club for the appropriate price.

According to AS, potential teams have been told that signing Asensio this summer will cost £35million.

Although Liverpool have already acquired Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez, the report suggests the 26-year-old is high on Jurgen Klopp’s wishlist.

Asensio on his future:

“I am concentrating on the national team. When this concentration is over, we will talk. We will see what I will do with my future. Renew or leave Real Madrid? I think there are three possibilities, there are also the possibility of staying and fulfilling my contract year.

“My future should not depend on whether or not I have a place at the next World Cup. Rumors are part of football, and even more so in Real Madrid. Top players are always associated with it. Many players come out every summer and that’s something we have to live with.”

Asensio has contributed 49 goals and 24 assists in 235 appearances for Real.
