AC Milan could be left as mere bystanders in the race for Marco Asensio with Paris Saint-Germain having launched their offer, a report claims.
Calciomercato.com report that Asensio has decided not to renew his contract with Real Madrid and will therefore leave on a free transfer at the end of next month when his contract expires after nine years with Los Blancos.
The Spaniard had taken note of the expressions of interest also received from Serie A – from Juventus and Milan above all – and he has now backtracked on his intentions to join his compatriot Unai Emery at Aston Villa.
Despite the huge salary offer from the English club, the Madrid-based newspaper AS writes that Paris Saint-Germain have come forward concretely, offering a four or five-year contract and good money.
However, Asensio’s decision to leave Real Madrid after nearly a decade is above all the desire to get a starting spot which, which might not be guaranteed with PSG.
