Barcelona is keen on signing a Real Madrid star next summer and could beat other suitors to the signature of the attacker come next summer.
Real Madrid maintained a 100% start to the season having won all the eight matches played so far including the super cup win against Eintracht Frankfurt before the commencement of the La Liga season.
Real Madrid boasts of squad depth and could deal with injuries with key players and still win games without their regulars some players would like to find game time elsewhere and their contract is coming to an end without renewal and one of the players in such category is Marco Asensio.
Barcelona veteran player not ready to quit
REPORT: Real Madrid set to snub a move for Mbappe
Asensio was seen as the future of the club when he rose to stardom some seasons back but a career-threatened injury slowed down his pace and he has never been the same again in some occasions he flashes his brilliance but a in club-like Real Madrid players are always ready to take up the space once a player suffers a dip in form or injured.
Asensio was once considered the first choice on the right wing even during the time of Gareth Bale at the club but has dropped down the pecking order with the likes of Rodrygo Goes and Fede Valverde ahead of him, though he did impress in his cameo against RB Leipzig to score the second goal and put the game to rest.
The Spaniard just has less than a year left on his current deal and could he end up making a shock move after it?
As reported by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona is interested in the situation of Asensio. They take him into account due to his age, level and tactical adaptability. And at 26 years old they see him as a mature player but still with a long career ahead of him.
Real Madrid could act to block his move to Camp Nou, AC Milan and Juventus were once linked with a move for the former Real Mallorca ace.
