CM: Liverpool’s emergence and Maldini’s call – the latest on Asensio’s future

By Oliver Fisher -

The future of Marco Asensio continues to arouse a lot of mystery and AC Milan continued to be mentioned as a possible destination.

Calciomercato.com reports that there are three options on the table for Asensio: to extend his contract with Real Madrid, to leave this summer or to stay until the natural expiration of his contract in 2023.

The first hypothesis is increasingly remote because there are no real dialogues between Real president Florentino Perez and his agent Jorge Mendes, while Los Blancos do not want to lose him for free, so the second option is gaining steam.

Arsenal, Newcastle and Liverpool are all keen on bringing the Spaniard to the Premier League but Milan have intrigued for months by the opportunity to sign him. Head coach Stefano Pioli likes him, while Paolo Maldini likes him and has also contacted Carlo Ancelotti for information.

The Rossoneri could put something on the plate that Jurgen Klopp could not guarantee which is continuous minutes and a guaranteed starting role, something which plays in their favour.

However, the asking price is €30m and Asensio currently gets €7m net per season. Milan meanwhile will have a budget far from that of the European superpowers and are working on other objectives too, so the situation will only become clearer over time.

  1. These numbers are crazy.
    30 mil transfer fee for a player going into last year of his contract. This is Asensio not Vinicius Jr.
    7 mil salary for a career back up
    Liverpool can have him

    1. There’s level to this game bro. A career “backup” at the big clubs like Liverpool or Real Madrid is better than most starters elsewhere.

  2. Does he start for Real Madrid or the Spanish NT?
    Has he ever been a regular starter for Real Madrid or the Spanish NT.
    That’s a NO. That’s why he is a back up.
    That doesn’t mean he won’t be an improvement of what Milan has on the right side , but not for 30 mil fee on expiring contract and 7 mil a season salary

    1. Yes he does start for RM. 31 appearances in the league and 8 in the CL for them last year… Also 26 appearances for the national team.
      Don’t know what you’re talking about.
