Real Madrid star plans to sort out his future after the World Cup


He has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League

Marco Asensio joined Real Madrid from Mallorca for a €3.9 million fee, signing a six year deal on December 2014. He remained with his club on loan until the end of the campaign and was again loaned to  RCD Espanyol for the whole campaign in the following season.

He returned back to the La Liga giants for the 2016/2017 season and developed under former manager Zinedine Zidane almost beyond recognition. He has been a key player for the club since then and has established himself as one of the best young talents in the world.

The Spaniard started the last season strongly, scoring in both legs of the Supercopa de Espana triumph over Barcelona. He scored 9 goals and assist 7 in 48 appearances and even managed managed to keep the likes of Isco and Gareth Bale out from the Starting XI during the first half of the campaign.

Though the 21 year old struggled to retain his place in the team and his progress stalled towards the end of the season as he failed to make an impact. But still ended the campaign positively as the club won their third consecutive Champions League.

The midfielder is considered as one of the hottest properties in the La Liga and has been linked with summer exit. European giants like Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all have reportedly shown interest in him and are monitoring his situation.

But Asensio told that he plans to sort out his future after the World Cup and his National team is the sole focus for the time being.

Asked about Liverpool’s interest, he said as quoted by Goal: “That’s something in the news but I’m very focused in the World Cup.

“When it ends, we can talk about that kind of thing. I’m very focused here in Russia, on the national team and performing well here.”
