Real Madrid has had a great start to the season. They have won all of their games so far and are at the top of both the La Liga table and their Champions League group. That’s even more impressive when you consider that there are serious questions about the club’s team depth and that key players like Karim Benzema have been hurt.
Some of the club’s players, however, might not be there for long at the Santiago Bernabeu. And it looks like one of them is Marco Asensio.
Asensio is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a regular starter for Real Madrid right now. Even though he did well when he came off the bench against RB Leipzig, the best he can hope for right now is to be an impact substitute, especially since Rodrygo is finally starting to be noticed. Also, the Spanish player has less than a year left on his current contract. After that, he could make a surprising move.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona is aware of what’s going on with Asensio. They think about him because of his age, level, and ability to change tactics. At 26, they see him as an experienced player with a long career ahead of him.
Asensio spent so much time and had so much success at Real Madrid that it would be strange for him to end up at Barcelona.
But football has seen weirder things happen, and Luis Figo did move from Barcelona to Real Madrid.
Asensio’s contract ends next summer, so he will be free to join any club he wants. This could be the deciding factor.
