Newcastle United is in a bidding war for Marco Asensio’s signature from Real Madrid this summer. Arsenal and Milan are interested too, but despite a few reports, Liverpool is not keen. As Sport reported, their info is that the most extensive offer Real Madrid has received for Marcos Asensio is from Newcastle United. Marcos Asensio has been linked with moves to Premier League clubs Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur this summer, with his current deal having just one year remaining, with there being currently no indications that the player and club are in agreement over a new contract. Mundo Deportivo reported last month that Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta at the Gunners to sign Real Madrid winger Marcos Asensio from Madrid. Real Madrid star Marco Asensio has been the leading man in the starting line-up at Madrid over the years but found himself benched for a significant part of last season.
It is reported that Real Madrid’s LaLiga has received interest from the Premier League in Rodrygo and would allow him to go for around EUR 40m. Kante has two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge Stadium, and it is reported that Real Madrid will want to keep him if an agreement on a fee for his services can be reached. Manager Xavi Hernandez is said to have been impressed by Kante’s form. While there were earlier suggestions Real Madrid was willing to let him go, recent reports have suggested that they would now be looking to strike an agreement before the end of his contract at the end of this season.
With Asensio’s contract set to expire in June 2023, Madrid may have to sell him this summer to avoid losing him to free agency. Newcastle will likely offer him a starting role, while Liverpool and Arsenal may pose a more formidable challenge. Liverpool, Arsenal and Milan are among the raft of major European clubs reported to be interested, with Liverpool looking to fill the shoes of Sadio Mane, who has joined Bayern Munich. Despite the blows, Mohamed Salah has said he will stay with Liverpool next season, putting a damper on reports that he would leave in the summer. There is still the possibility that Marco Asensio may remain at Real Madrid, with the club offering him a new deal earlier in the year, but he did not receive the wages he was looking for, so he turned it down. According to previous speculations, Asensio wants to be a consistent starter at his next club, which may eventually put Liverpool out of competition.
