Zinedine Zidane has lost one of his key players for the coming months: Marco Asensio. Summer planning will be forced to vary
Marco Asensio was allocated to be a key player for the Real Madrid of Zinedine Zidane the next season. The mediapunta Majorcan had to play a place with Vinicius Junior in which it split with advantage, but everything went to rack and ruin in a friendly against the Arsenal that went out him expensive: it broke the previous crusader and the external meniscus and will be more than six months of drop.
Zidane, in this way, has lost to a footballer of a lot of level, that was allocated to be one of the leaders and of the that expected a step forward during the season that will begin shortly. His grave injury will have an important impact in the staff and will do that, maybe, some of the players that seemed to be in the ramp of exit no longer are it so much.
A case of special quotation is the one of Gareth Bleat, a footballer whose situation seemed not having turn backwards but that now can vary. Asensio Went to be headline in the right band, the one who the Welsh has occupied during several seasons. After the injury of the Majorcan, Bleat had minutes in front of the Arsenal, made a partidazo and even marked. At all it seems to indicate that it goes to remain, but has opened him an interesting window if to Zidane interests him reconsider his opinion.
A similar case to the of Bleat is the one of James Rodríguez that, in spite of the injury of Asensio, seems that it follows without explaining for Zidane. Totally opposite is the case of Isco Alarcón since, if it no longer was a player transferible before the problem of the Majorcan, now is practically untransferable, especially by his technician and his desborde.
The one who himself that seems that will have the doors of the titularity opened wide open is Vinicius Junior, the footballer that went to contest the place in the right band with Asensio. The Brazilian, in spite of that gives him much better play in the left band (that it will be occupied by Eden Hazard), will have now a lot of more possibilities to consolidate in an offensive trident with Karim Benzema and the Belgian.
The alternatives: Brahim, Kubo, Rodrygo...
Zinedine Zidane also will have a wide list of possible substitutes of Asensio if it looks for between the youngsters of the first team and of the filial. Brahim, that arrived does some pertinent months of the Manchester City, will have now options to play. Also they open the doors for Rodrygo Goes and for Takefusa Kubo, that in a principle went to begin in the filial but that now reinforce his candidature to the first team.
