Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has seemingly decided that Marco Asensio will spend next season at the Bernabeu.
Asensio was once touted as one of the top prospects in world football, but the playmaker has endured a below-par campaign for Real.
Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are allegedly monitoring any developments regarding the 23-year-old’s future, but Zidane wants to keep the Spain international at the club.
The head coach is quoted by Marca as saying: “I have spoken to him and told him that he will be fundamental to the team, and I want him here with us.”
Asensio still has over four years remaining on his contract. It is believed that Real Madrid value their rising star at around £100m.
