Report: Club now open door for their 'world-class' player to leave, after claims Tottenham could try to sign him
Antonio Conte’s men have enjoyed a successful transfer window so far and have bolstered their squad significantly.
It seems now that Spurs will look for opportunities late in the window as they have now addressed key areas in the team. And after reported interest in Asensio, he could now become available.
Carlo Anceolotti has no problem with the player staying but with just a year left on his deal, the club are exploring the possibility of selling him.
The player has apparently already warned Madrid that he is willing to stay until next summer before leaving on a free transfer.
But Mundo Deportivo notes that Asesnio’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been sounding out interest in the player from a range of top European clubs. So far, there have been no formal offers for the Spaniard.
Ancelotti’s men will not be offering Asensio a new contract so the player may have to find a move away from the club this summer.
Real Madrid open door for Asensio to leave
Despite the fact Spurs have invested heavily in the squad this summer, they seem to be on the lookout for a creative player. Reports have suggested the club were keen on Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo, but talks seem to have stalled.
And Asensio could represent a good alternative option for the North London side. The Spanish international has fallen down the pecking order at Madrid but is still a talented player.
His contract situation could make him an attractive option for Spurs this late on in the window. The Madrid man can play across the front-three and in an attacking midfield role.
Asensio is yet to make an appearance for the La Liga club this season, but did chip in with 10 goals in 31 appearances last season.
