The Milan target Marco Asensio has endured a rather patchy season at Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti, during which inconsistent performances and the presence of other valuable talent at the club saw him bounce back into the starting XI. With his Los Blancos Asensio, whose contract expires at the end of next season, is at a crossroads in his career and now has a chance to represent another European giant.
According to Spanish outlet defense headquarters, Asensio unfazed by an ‘undervalued’ €5m net-per-season offer from Milan. He would like a higher salary package that would net him €7m-€8m a year, but it’s uncertain if that’s the case Rossoneri are ready to fill the demands of the Mallorca-born winger.
However, things could change at San Siro with the upcoming takeover by Bahraini company InvestCorp and Milan could afford the 26-year-old’s services.
In addition, as reported by CalciomercatoAsensio’s agent move could justify a Premier League move instead as new agent Jorge Mendes is reportedly pushing a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur from Antonio Conte.

The influential Portuguese agent, who represents Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael Leao, Renato Sanches, Joao Felix and also coach Jose Mourinho, is said to be interested in a deal with Conte’s team.
North London rivals Arsenal have already done so offered a deal for Asensio but the emergence of Spurs as a suitor spices things up as the striker enters the final year of his six-year deal.
Asensio is yet to make a decision on his future but Real Madrid haven’t given up the chance to offer him a contract extension and have presented an improved offer in hopes of convincing the Spaniard to stay. In addition, the almost confirmed change of Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain Asensio’s presence in the starting eleven of the record European champion should further minimize.
