The Real Madrid winger is a target for the Barca chief who is leaving
Marco Asensio will be one of the names of the summer market. Without a firm offer to renew his contract at Real Madrid, the Mallorca-born striker has numerous offers to move to another club and get a role he has never had in the Madrid team, where he has not been able to get a starting place, although his wish would be to be able to renew in the hope that he can settle in the starting eleven and stop being an impact sub.
His numbers this season confirm his importance in the team despite almost always coming from the bench: 11 goals, 8 assists and 46 games played.
His destination could be Unai Emery's Aston Villa, who have asked for his signature. And who would be in charge of managing the deal? None other than Mateu Alemany, who is set to occupy the position of sporting director for the English team.
Alemany already wanted to take Asensio to Barça and now he would try to convince him with the mediation of his agent Jorge Mendes. Milan have also knocked on Asensio's door and the Italian team's proposal could also seduce the Spaniard.
Aston Villa's offer could be double that of Real Madrid's and reach a figure of eight million euros, given that Asensio would arrive on a free transfer and the English team would be in a position to make the best financial offer given the Premier League's wealth.
