Marco Asensio expected to leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
The 26-year-old Spaniard has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal or Tottenham his potential destinations.
He has entered into the final 12 months of his Real Madrid contract and has failed to cement a place in the starting XI.
After winning three La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies, Asensio wants a new challenge in his professional career.
Former Real Madrid player Steve McManaman believes Asensio’s style would suit both Arsenal and Tottenham.
‘I believe Arsenal or Tottenham would be a good next move for Marcos Asensio,’ McManaman told HorseRacing.net.
‘I think he would suit the Premier League. He’s a good player. He definitely needs to play more. That goes without saying.
‘They may need a forward. They’ve got Karim Benzema, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo, but they probably need Asensio as well at this moment in time.
‘The way he plays, I think Tottenham or Arsenal would suit him. You don’t want to be disrespectful to teams like Newcastle, but they’re still a work in progress.
‘I think the better a team he goes for, would help Asensio. I don’t think he’s a player that you could stick in that Newcastle team at the moment and hope that he’s going to beat ten men and score loads of goals.
‘He’s not that type of player. I think he’s more suited to a well-rounded team. Tottenham and Arsenal; teams that are around the top of the league and play that style of football.’
