Marco Asensio could be offered a potential route out of Real Madrid this summer with Manchester United interested in him
After falling out of Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup in 2021/22, the Spanish international may be facing a crossroads in his professional career.
Last season, he made 19 La Liga starts and 12 cameos from the bench, a total equaled by his starting opponent Fede Valverde.
In recent weeks, Ancelotti has lauded Asensio, but there is a growing sense that Real Madrid will move on without him as a major player next season.
In recent weeks, Asensio has been linked with a move to United as Erik Ten Hag aims to rebuild his team this summer. Ten Hag is said to want to add offensive players to his team this summer, with Asensio being the most recent link.
The 26-year-old, who is presently with Real Madrid, can play anywhere on the attacking frontline, but he prefers to play on the wing, usually on the right side. Asensio is valued at roughly €50 million by Los Blancos, and United are aiming to fund a summer squad overhaul at Old Trafford after the appointment of Dutch head coach Erik ten Hag.
United have been granted first refusal on the Mallorcan winger, according to Mundo Deportivo, with his agent Jorge Mendes already in discussions with the Premier League heavyweights.
