It seems that barring some last-minute twists, Marco Asensio should continue his career outside of Spanish football. The Balearic celebrated his failed goal at the Camp Nou showing his Real Madrid 'blood'
The Real Madrid was near to complicate the current League when it marked the 1-2 near of the end in the Classical of this Sunday. Fortunately and of just and evident way -although no so much for Ancelotti- the goal did not finish going up to the marker by a clear offside of Marco Asensio, that after marking with his left-handed proceeded to celebrate the so much signalling the shield madridista while it saw to the fans culé.
It was that the reason went to deny any possibility that it could arrive to the Barça like free agent, or to try his renewal, or by him emotion of the moment, the true is that the message has arrived clear: the Balearic is man merengue. His agreement expires at the end of the season and in the Bernabéu do not have intentions to renew him if it does not accept a lower wage, by what surely do not exist agreement.
It could have done a big favour to the Barça
The player perhaps wanted to leave clear that it wants to keep on being an important piece in the white team, where has lost chevrons in the two last seasons with names like Valverde and Rodrygo. Asensio Has fallen in a cycle to go in as acting, mark some goal -important or no- receive a titularity and do a horrible party that again sends it to the bench.
Precisely that is what wants to avoid go back to be followed living a good part of the white fans, as well as what does not want to begin to live the culé. The best version of Asensio, in spite of his hardly 27 years, seems that it already remained backwards and neither Barça neither Madrid seem the ideal place for a player that costs him be constant to the hour to contribute goals and good game in important nights.
Little to offer in the two big Spaniards
With intention or no, Asensio seems to have closed the door in the Camp Nou, if sometime some part of the Barcelona directive considered him seriously like a reinforcement for the future. Further to arrive free, his index card would not be at all low for a player not titling, in addition to sharing position and some characteristics with Dembélé and Raphinha, two players that surely will be still in the staff of Xavi Hernández.
