He was one of the great young talents that Real Madrid signed and promised to become one of the leaders of the first team, but after five seasons Marco Asensio remains 100% untapped. The Mallorcan gives you one of lime and another of sand, in one match he is able to leave you astonished with his quality and the next day go unnoticed on the pitch. That lack of regularity, along with the occasional injury, have made Asensio not an indisputable starter in this team against all odds.
But now that Madrid are starting a new stage at the hands of Ancelotti, the club should give him one more chance and continue to bet on him. It is true that Madrid needs to sell players to lighten the squad and make money to sign Mbappé but Asensio can still give a lot to this team and there are other players who should be in front of him in the exit operation such as Isco, Bale, Mariano or Jovic. In addition, he has two years left on his contract and you do not have to rush with him.

Good players do not forget how to play football or lose their quality, and Asensio is one of those players. And seeing the rest of the squad and how they ended last season, it never hurts to have a player with a goal and overflow, even though in his last performances he has not shown it. The forward is only 25 years old and despite the fact that his market value has fallen from the 90 million he reached in 2018 to 35, he still has time ahead to revalue and above all to return to being the player he was as soon as he regains confidence. and that knee responds properly. This has to be your season.
But the most important thing is that the coach has him and Ancelotti’s voice in terms of squad planning must be respected. Neither Florentino nor José Ángel Sánchez have to sell a player without counting on the Italian coach, and it does not seem that the board is working to bring someone better in Asensio’s place. To remove staff from the staff, it is better to leave things as they are.
