Marco Asensio has suitors, the Real Madrid winger is said to be on the shortlist of three major European clubs. Asensio was thought to be one of Spanish soccer's most promising young prospects and has seen himself loaned out on various occasions and this season has played in 4 of Real Madrid’s La Liga games.
Asensio did have an improved season last year playing in 35 games for Madrid and scoring 5 goals, he is still on the Spanish national team where he has 25 caps and 1 goal. Despite some loan spells Asensio has been consistently in Real Madrid’s squad but according to Fichajes, never lived up to his expectations.
Now with the World Cup looming and playing time at Real Madrid decreasing, Marco Asensio may pull the trigger on one of the three options he has available. Here are the three clubs reported to be interested in Marco Asensio.
AC Milan was interested in bringing in Asensio before, and they might pull the trigger on him again. The Spanish midfielder would fit in well at AC Milan and could play a starting role on the team.
Juventus is in a sort of rebuilding mode and the midfield at Juve is very talented, while playing time might also be hard to come by a change of scenery might do Asensio some good. He would have to fight for playing time.
Liverpool would be an interesting option, Asensio can play on either wings and is creative, without the pressure of being at Real Madrid he could find his groove at Liverpool. Harvey Elliott has been sidelined and Asensio could be a good January pick up.
