Newcastle, for Asensio
Newcastle, for Asensio
Uncertainty is setting in for the future of Marco Asensio (26 years old). The Balearic Islands, still on vacation, continue to receive offers, although he still has no renewal proposal from Real Madrid. Now it is Newcastle that wants the Spaniard for next season. The English team wants the Balearic Islands to be the cornerstone of the new project. After the arrival of the Arab owner, Mohamed bin Salman, The Magpies want to become the new candidates for the Premier title , something they have not achieved since 1927, although they came close to the title in the 90s (it was second in 1995 -96 and 1996-97). Asensio has not had, until now, a renewal offer from the Madrid club. It ends in 2023. The club’s idea is that he renews or be transferred. There is also a third way: that he stays for the remaining campaign and is released in 2023. The fact of not having an offer can speed up the process of a possible march to England. It must be remembered that Asensio changed his former agent, Horacio Gaggioli, for Jorge Mendes. The Portuguese wants to find his new pupil a place that meets the economic and sporting demands of the Mallorcan, who aspires first of all to attend the World Cup.His signing for Madrid became official in 2015 from Mallorca, but he would not debut in white until the 2016-2017 season. He was on loan at Espanyol (one season), participating in 37 games and scoring four goals with the perico team. On his return to the white club, he has become a fundamental piece: 235 official matches, 49 goals and 24 assists to win three Champions Leagues, three League titles, two European Super Cups, three Spanish Super Cups and three Club World Cups. He won a total of 14 titles with the white club to make a place for himself in history and in the Madrid fans.
These achievements have not gone unnoticed by the English team that wants to seize their services at all costs. Newcastle, after saving the category last season at the stroke of a checkbook (102 million euros in transfers during the winter market), wants to set up a multimillion-dollar project to be able to hunt down the big clubs in England. The English team has set its sights on La Liga in order to strengthen itself for next year: to the well-known signing of Trippier (31) last winter, the names of Asensio himself, Carrasco (28), Lodi (24) are added or Fekir (28), as possible reinforcements for Las Urracas . Without forgetting Neymar, who is looking for an exit from PSG(although it is complicated after its automatic renewal until 2027). Joelinton (25), a Brazilian player for Newcastle, was very receptive to the possible signing of Ney : “Of course we can get Neymar a place…” Marco Asensio has the ball in his court to continue another year in white or, on the other hand, change the scene and be the new cornerstone of a millionaire project. The Balearic will decide his future…
