Marco Asensio is reportedly keen to leave Real Madrid. The player is also willing to take a pay cut to leave the club.

The 26-year-old’s long-term future at Santiago Bernabeu is believed to be uncertain. He has also now entered the final 12 months of his contract.

WHY DOES MARCO ASENSIO WANT TO LEAVE REAL MADRID

Marco Asensio made 42 appearances for Real Madrid last season. However, his majority of the appearances were from the bench. He only started 23 times under Carlo Ancelotti. The player is now seeking regular first-team football. He is now in the prime years of his career and he wants to be appreciated by the manager and the club.

According to reports, Marco Asensio is desperate to leave Real Madrid. He is even ready to take a pay cut to help boost his chances of a summer exit. Real Madrid are also happy to consider bids for Marco Asensio. Asensio’s game time has been limited since the resurgence of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. They are expected to be the bright present and future of Los Blancos.

TOP EUROPEAN CLUBS ARE INTERESTED IN THE SERVICES OF THE SPANISH WINGER

Liverpool, Arsenal, and AC Milan are among the top European interested in the winger. The Reds are looking at the Spanish to replace Sadio Mane who has joined Bayern Munich. Arsenal are looking at him to replace Nicolas Pepe who might leave this summer. Whereas AC Milan are eyeing monitoring him in case they miss Hakim Ziyech. However, there is another team in for him.

The name of the team is Newcastle United. According to recent reports, the Magpies are ready to pay him big wages. They want to make the winger their marquee signing in the summer transfer window. However, they first have to beat the competition of major European sides. The other thing is no side has yet tabled a bid for the player.

Real Madrid values Marco Asensio between €25m (£21.6m) and €30m (£25.8m). This is despite the winger being out of contract in 2023. However, many reports also state the La Liga side is ready to let him leave on a free transfer. Asensio recorded 12 goals and 2 assists despite his limited playing time.
