It is reported that Barcelona is interested in signing Marco Asensio from Real Madrid.
According to Albert Masnou (“Sport”), the Catalan club has contacted Asensio’s agent about a possible transfer.
Barcelona have a good relationship with Jorge Mendes and they are considering Ruben Neves and Asensio as possible targets.
The report says:
Barcelona and the player’s agent discussed the possibility of his transfer to Barca, taking advantage of the fact that he will arrive for free and will not pay a transfer fee.”
“As far as we know, there is still no agreement between the two sides.”
Actually, Asensio has not decided anything about his future yet. He can stay in Madrid. He can move to the Premier League or sign a contract with Barcelona. Everything is open.”
Manchester United are fans of Asensio, especially considering his weak attack.
Eric Ten Hag’s team has improved its defense, but it still lacks a vanguard.
Asensio has experience playing at the highest level for Real Madrid.
The three-time Champions League winner is a versatile striker and can operate in several attacking positions.
He will provide the necessary depth in United’s offensive line.
Asensio’s contract expires on June 30, 2023, and Madrid has offered him an extension on preferential terms.
It remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will decide to stay in Spain or seek a new challenge abroad.
