Marco Asensio on the verge of leaving Real Madrid as a free agent

Marco Asensio is expected to leave the club as free agent after this season

Marco Asensio’s future at Real Madrid have gained momentum recently, with indications suggesting that the talented Spanish midfielder is set to bid farewell to the club as a free agent at the end of this season. Asensio’s potential departure from the Santiago Bernabeu has generated questions among fans, as they speculate on the possible destinations for the Spanish playmaker.

Asensio burst onto the scene with Real Madrid in 2016 following his arrival from Mallorca. With his exceptional technical skills, intelligent movement, and an eye for goal, he quickly established himself as a key figure in the team. His early performances drew comparisons to legendary Spanish midfielders like Isco and Juan Mata, prompting fans to dream of another homegrown talent flourishing at the heart of Real Madrid’s midfield.

Unfortunately, Asensio’s progress was put on a break by a series of injuries that limited his playing time and hampered his development. He endured a severe cruciate ligament injury during the 2019-2020 season, which sidelined him for the majority of that campaign. Although he has since returned to the pitch, the competition for starting spots at Real Madrid has intensified, reducing his playing time and casting doubts on his future at the club.
