Madrid makes it possible for Marco Asensio, who is coveted by Liverpool, to depart the team.
Liverpool now have the opportunity to make a move since Real Madrid has made winger Marco Asensio available for a transfer before the transfer window ends.
The Spaniard has been on Liverpool’s radar for some time, and with the first team’s current injury issue, a move may be on the horizon.
Asensio is in a difficult situation with Real Madrid, according to the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo (h/t Liverpool Echo), with Los Blancos apparently prepared to sell the 26-year-old. It would put a stop to a winning streak in the capital city of Spain.
Real Madrid acquired Marco Asensio in 2016 from RCD Espanyol, and his propensity for scoring quickly made him a fan favorite. He had high expectations after a strong rookie season.
He was anticipated to be a team stalwart in the upcoming seasons. However, neither the athlete nor the squad were able to achieve their desired results.
Asensio has appeared in 235 games since his move, scoring 49 goals and dishing out 24 assists. It may be argued that Real Madrid values him highly given his £592.5 million release clause.
Asensio needs to decide on his future soon because his contract only has one year left. The Liverpool injury issue may present him with a chance to play more games as the World Cup draws near, which he will likely find challenging in Madrid.
We have not had the best start to the Premier League season thus far. A need for attacking reinforcements is undoubtedly evident after two draws in the first two games and a litany of first-team ailments.
It would be a smart move for Liverpool to take the Spanish attacker into consideration, and it is not incorrect to admit that there is a good talent there whose development has been halted in the past due to significant injuries.
