Real Madrid could become the first team to win back to back Champions Leagues in a few weeks (since it changed format from the European Cup), so it doesn’t mean you’re a bad player if you can’t consistently get in their lineup…
Gareth Bale may not get selected for the final against Juventus, for example, because of Isco’s form.
But 21-year-old Spaniard Marco Asensio isn’t happy with coming off the bench all the time and according to Spanish newspaper Diario Gol, has told club officials he’s happy to move to ‘Liverpool, Arsenal or Juventus’ if Zinedine Zidane only sees him as a rotation option.
In April, Radio Station Cadena Cope said our €50m bid for the winger had been rejected, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of fee Madrid would find acceptable if they do sell Asensio.
Personally, we can’t see it happening. He’s an enormous talent and Real Madrid are not a club who are ever forced into selling. They want to keep him and following 12 goals/assists in 29 apps (One every 130 mins) this term, it’s no surprise.
