Real Madrid: Real Madrid’s first offer to Asensio was low
Marco Asensio wants to continue in real Madrid and the white club would like to have the striker in the coming seasons. With this desire shared by both parties, it would seem then that the renewal of the footballer, whose contract expires on June 30, is imminent. The agreement, however, is currently at a standstill, far from being produced due to the difference in conditions sought by the player, represented by jorge mendesand Real Madrid, inflexible in this type of negotiations.
Asensio received a renewal offer a few months ago that he has not yet accepted. Basically, because she doesn’t like it. Madrid’s proposal is slightly downward (around half a million euros less than what he receives), when the player seeks a salary increase that would put him at six million euros net per season. Madrid, for now, believes that his proposal (more than 4 million euros net per year) is adjusted to his performance in recent years and to what the footballer can offer in the future. And from there it doesn’t move.
Real Madrid wants Asensio to continue in the next three seasons, But not at any price. The club thinks that Marco is an extraordinary footballer, but his level has relegated him in the eyes of the sports management to the role of a second-line player, losing the status of undisputed starter. Five years ago, when Asensio burst in like thunder under the direction of Zinedine Zidane, Asensio enjoyed a much heavier poster than he has now. Marco was glimpsed even at the Ballon d’Or and The Best galas, as one of the great talents of world football, as a player who could enter the ideal eleven of the season on a recurring basis. The cruciate ligament injury he suffered in 2019, however, marked a before and after in his career. The player has not reached the level that he showed in his early years and has not evolved as expected, hence when it comes to renewing, Real Madrid has the position of strength.
In the sports planning drawn up by the club, Benzema, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Valverde they are ahead in the ranking of players who can act above. And if we add to that the plan to sign a galactic (Haaland or Mbapp)for 2024 and the arrival of EndrickRight now, Asensio is a (luxury) complement to the squad. Hence, the offer is downward.
Asensio’s idea has always been to renew for Real Madrid, but he expected a greater effort from the club, a gesture of affection that for now has not been found in the offer received. Last year, before summer, Asensio decided to end his relationship with his lifelong agent, horace gaggiolito work with Gestifute and specifically with jorge mendes. One year after the end of his contract with the white club, the movement was understood by the fans as a strategy to leave Real Madrid, but the first directive that the Portuguese super agent had received was just the opposite, that of trying to renew with the white club
Asensiowho wants to play more for Real Madrid, knows that there is no way to contractually ensure the minutes, but I know that he wants a higher status in the contract than the one he has, even below that of Marian. Endorsed by the 12 goals in 42 games that he scored last season, figures only improved by Benzema and Vinicius, the Portuguese representative asked Real Madrid for an upward renewal. The player does not want a rise in the team’s salary scale, but a wink from the club after many years occupying the lower middle zone of the squad at an economic level. For now, though, he’s stuck to the bone.
Perfectly adapted to a personal and family level in Madrid, where a house has just been built and in which he hopes to continue living after the wedding to be held in Mallorca this summer, the player’s great wish is to continue wearing white, although in recent weeks he has already been meditating on other proposals that he has on him of the table. In this type of negotiations, it is mandatory for the agents to have a plan B, C and D to the main desire of the footballer. Mendes, in this sense, is one of the best in the world and offers will not be lacking for Asensio.
The offer is not eternal
Marco, who has scored six goals in 31 games this season, has played two consecutive games without minutes (Bara and Betis) and feels that he has to make an imminent decision, since his performance does not seem like it will cause a reaction in the club. Real Madrid. More than anything because Ancelotti seems to have relegated him to a secondary role after the setback on February 25 against Atlético de Madrid. It is also known by the players, after the Sergio Ramos case, that renewal offers are not on the table for a long time.
He Milan, in Italy, and several Premier League teams already have the Mallorcan player on their radar. As in his day, Barcelona had it for dealing a blow to the eternal rival, something that seems to be ruled out today due to the good relationship between Laporta and Florentino and the salary situation of the Barça club. No proposal seduces Asensio more than Real Madrid, from which he expects a gesture.
