Asensio depends on Brahim

Another of the players of the current Real Madrid squad with the future in the air, in addition to the Kroos, Ceballos, Modric or Nacho (Benzema, as already reported by AS, will continue until 2024 after winning the Ballon d’Or), is Marco Asensio. The Spaniard ends his contract on June 30 and there is still no news about it, despite the fact that he is signing a brilliant second part of the season: he has ten goals and six assists in 1,494 minutes, for which he participates in a goal every 93 minutes this course. He is the team’s fifth goalscorer, behind Benzema, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Valverde.

Last summer, Real Madrid waited for offers to arrive for the Balearic Islands when he only had a year left in white, but the one that was then Asensio’s new agent, the Portuguese Jorge Mendesdid not transfer any proposal to the club. Now the situation has changed, the Spaniard wants to stay and is waiting for an offer that, for the moment, has not arrived.

And it may not come because Madrid is evaluating what to do with Brahim. The man from Malaga, who ends his loan spell at Milan on June 30, will return to Madrid and the club have him for the 2023-24 season. But both he and Asensio do not fit and it is foreseeable that the club will have to choose, in the case of two players with a very similar profile, wing attackers with the ability to play inside and who would start as substitutes to refresh the starters.

Hazard’s site, key

The only option that Real Madrid has to fit both into the squad for the 2023-24 season is that they manage to release Hazard, something that seems very complicated at the moment. The Belgian, the highest paid player in the squad (30 million gross per season) and who hardly counts (he has only played 331 minutes this season), recently made it clear that he has no intention of leaving Madrid, despite knowing that he is not It counts for Ancelotti and that he is far from stealing minutes from Vinicius, Rodrygo, Valverde or Asensio.

In the summer, Madrid will explore the possibility of sending him to a team of his choice, even if this means paying practically the entire token; at this point, Madrid gives up that money that the Belgian has signed (his contract ends in June 2024) and the only thing he can make clear is his file to fit a player who does count minimally for Carletto there. But Hazard’s “yes” is needed and, for the moment, the Belgian does not seem inclined to move.
