Marco Asensio want to continue on real Madrid and the alvinegro club would like to count on the striker in the coming seasons. With this will shared by both parties, it seems that the renewal of the footballer, whose contract ends on June 30, is imminent. The agreement, however, is currently at a standstill, far from being implemented due to the difference in conditions claimed by the player, represented by jorge mendesand Real Madrid, inflexible in this type of negotiations.
Asensio received a renewal offer a few months ago that he has not yet accepted.. Basically because he doesn’t like it. Real Madrid’s proposal is slightly downwards (about half a million euros less than what he received), when the player wanted a salary increase that would put him at six million euros net per season. Madrid, for now, believe that its proposal (more than 4 million euros net per year) is adjusted to its performance in recent years and what the footballer can offer in the future. And from there it does not move.
Real Madrid want Asensio to stay with the team for the next three seasons, But not at any price. The club considers Marco an extraordinary footballer, but his level has relegated him in the eyes of the sporting directors to the role of a second-tier player, losing his status as an undisputed starter. Five years ago, when Asensio exploded like thunder under the guidance of Zinedine Zidane, Asensio liked a poster much heavier than it has now. Marco was even glimpsed at the Ballon d’Or and The Best galas, as one of the great talents of world football, as a player who could break into the season’s ideal eleven on a recurring basis. The cruciate ligament injury suffered in 2019, however, marked a before and after in his career. The player has not returned to the level he showed in the first years and has not evolved as expected, so when it comes to renewing, Real Madrid is in a position of strength.
In the sports planning elaborated by the club, Benzema, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Valverde they are ahead in the ranking of players who can play above. And if we add to that the plan to sign a galactic contract (Haaland or Mbappe)for 2024 and the arrival of EndrickAt the moment, Asensio is a (deluxe) complement to the squad. Therefore, the offer is descending.
Asensio’s idea was always to renew for Real Madrid, but he expected a greater effort from the club, a gesture of affection that for now has not been found in the offer received. Last year, before the summer, Asensio decided to end his relationship with his longtime agent, horace gaggiolito work with Gestifute and specifically with jorge mendes. A year after the end of the contract with the white club, the movement was understood by the supporters as a strategy to leave Real Madrid, but the first directive that the Portuguese super agent had received was precisely the opposite, that of trying to renew with the white club
Asensiowho wants to play more for Real Madrid, knows that there is no way to contractually guarantee the minutes, but he wants a higher status in the contract than he has, even below that of mariana. endorsed by 12 goals in 42 games he scored last season, numbers only improved by Benzema and Vinícius, the Portuguese representative asked Real Madrid for an upward renewal. The player is not looking for an increase in the team’s salary table, but rather a wink from the club after many years occupying the lower-middle zone of the squad at an economic level. For now though, it has hit the bone.
Perfectly adapted on a personal and family level in Madrid, where a house has just been built and in which he hopes to continue living after the wedding that will be celebrated in Mallorca this summer, the great desire of the player is to continue wearing white, even though in the last few weeks he has been meditating on other proposals that he has at the top of the table. In this type of negotiation, it is mandatory that agents have a plan B, C and D for the player’s main desire. Mendes, in that sense, is one of the best in the world and offers will not be lacking for Asensio.
The offer is not eternal
Marco, who has scored six goals in 31 games this season, has two consecutive games without minutes (Barça and Betis) and feels that he has to make an imminent decision, as his performance does not seem to cause a reaction at Real Madrid. Above all, because Ancelotti seems to have relegated him to a secondary role after his stumbling block on February 25 against Atlético de Madrid. Players are also aware, after the Sergio Ramos case, that renewal offers have not been on the table for a long time.
He Milan, in Italy, and several Premier teams already have the Majorcan player on their radar. As in his time, Barcelona had to deal a blow to the eternal rival, something that today seems discarded due to the good relationship between Laporta and Florentine and the salary situation of the Barcelona club. No proposal seduces Asensio more than Real Madrid, from which he expects a gesture.
