The Real Madrid could not have begun with worse foot his pre-season. Marco Asensio fell lesionado in the second party of the whites in United States against the Arsenal and the club has confirmed the worst possible diagnostic. After making him the medical proofs pertinenentes has arrived to the conclusion that that the Balearic suffers a break of the ligament crossed previous and of the external meniscus of his left knee.

The attacker madridista will be of drop between six and nine months and will not be able to go back to get dressed of short until 2020. This injury supposes a very hard hit for the player, that was in front of the big opportunity of his career. The right band of the team does not have owner and Zinedine Zidane trusted he so that it occupied it this course. The French will have to look for an alternative for this side, since the international Spanish, being optimists, will not return until February.

The communiqué of the Real Madrid signalled also that in the next days the footballer will be taken part quirúrgicamente of this grave injury of knee. In the meantime, Zidane and Florentino Pérez will have to think in the composition of the staff without Marco Asensio. The drop of long length of the Balearic could do that the merengues paralizen some operations, as for example the exits of Gareth Bleat, James Rodríguez, Lucas Vázquez, Brahim or Isco.

The Welsh, that marked in front of the Arsenal and completed a big meeting, does not explain for 'Zizou' and the club looks for him exit. The injury of Asensio could do that the British remained to cover a right band that is something orphan in these moments. Another that does not explain for the technical Frenchman is James, that sounds for the Athletic of Madrid with strength. The Colombian can exert in right band and it will be necessary to see if this injury influences or no in his future.

Lucas is the right extreme purer that have the whites and is very of the taste of Zidane. The club thought in doing box with him if it arrived some offer, but with this panorama all indicates that the Galician will not move . Isco Is another of which is in the list of transferibles to take out money and can fichar to Pogba. The malagueño does not split like titling, but has the beneplácito of Zidane and could be of utility in the mediapunta in front of the drop of Asensio.

Opportunity for the youngest

Brahim, Rodrygo or Take Kubo also could have more options to play and to remain in the first team with the injury of the Majorcan. The plan of the club with Brahim went through a cession, but perhaps the things change now that the right band no longer has owner. On the other hand, Rodrygo and Kubo belong to the Castilla and only would go up with the greater if Zidane wanted to it like this. The injury of Asensio could cause that both have more occasions to show his quality to the mázimo level. The two can manage in this position to perfection and are two very valid roads.

Finally, Vinicius could be the big option of Zidane for this side. The Brazilian is much more comfortable in the left, but the arrival of Eden Hazard subtracts him options here. Without Marco Asensio, could have a lot of minutes in the right side if it learnt to play there. Has conditions to do it, but everything will depend on he and of if the trainer madridista gives him the opportunity of demostarlo in the terrain of game.
