Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio is reportedly in advanced talks to move to Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent this summer. Reports have emerged that the Spanish international has received an offer from the French champions that has proven most attractive for him at this point in time, although Juventus and AC Milan have also been credited with expressing their interest in securing his signature.
It appears that Asensio has stood firm on his decision to depart from Real Madrid following their failure to convince him financially with their proposal for an extension of his contract, which is due to expire at this summer. Since the beginning of this season, the 26-year-old Mallorcan has only started less than half of all La Liga games for Los Blancos, with reports suggesting he’s looking for more regular playing time elsewhere.
The news comes shortly after PSG were crowned French League Champions and now it looks like they are ready to add another great talent into their ranks. Should these rumors turn out to be true then it will mark an incredible coup for the Ligue 1 outfit and indeed one which could bolster their chances of success next season.
Asensio is no stranger to European football having appeared regularly for both Mallorca and Real Madrid since 2015 when he first made his debut in Spain’s top tier. He was part of the Spanish national team which won Euro 2020, so there’s no doubt about his quality and experience at elite level competitions. On top of that, he scored a total of 11 goals across all competitions last season, so if indeed he does join PSG then they will be acquiring a player who can make a difference on the pitch.
All eyes will now be on what happens over coming weeks concerning this potential transfer saga between Real Madrid and PSG over Asensio’s future. It goes without saying that such a move would mean big things for all involved parties as well as fans who wait eagerly with anticipation while donning their favorite Real Madrid jersey. Until we know more about what could happen we can only speculate but either way we should expect some exciting news soon enough as this story continues to develop!
