AC Milan were heavily linked with a move for Marco Asensio earlier in the summer and their pursuit of him may not be over yet, a report claims.
As Calciomercato.com report, Asensio in the end decided to remain at Real Madrid but he will not renew his contract expiring in 2023, which therefore means he is accepting it will be a final campaign in the Spanish capital before he moves on.
The Spanish forward is a player that is still very much admired by Milan’s technical director Paolo Maldini for his experience, quality and his versatility, so much so that the Rossoneri could throw their hats in the ring to land him on a free transfer ahead of 2023-24.
Last season, the 26-year-old made 42 appearances with 12 goals and 2 assists. In total, Asensio played 2,110 minutes and it must be seen how the situation develops in the current campaign with regards to his playing time and position in the hierarchy under Ancelotti.
