Real Madrid winger Asensio still in Milan’s sights

Milan are still reportedly keen on signing Marco Asensio from Real Madrid, especially after missing out on Lille talent Sven Botman.

The Rossoneri failed to match the figures requested by the French side and eventually the Dutch centre back couldn’t wait any longer, deciding to finally accept Newcastle United’s offer. The Milanese club are now considering a change in transfer market strategy as the window’s opening approaches.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport, Milan director Paolo Maldini knows that a quality playmaker is needed this summer and he’s still keeping a close eye on Asensio’s situation with Real Madrid.

Los Blancos want around €30m for the 26-year-old Spanish forward, whose contract expires in Madrid next year, and the player himself wants a salary of around €6m, figures that seem fairly incompatible with the Rossoneri’s current strategy.

Asensio scored 12 goals and provided two assists in 42 appearances across all competitions last season under Carlo Ancelotti.

  1. Just sign both Lang and De Ketelaere. Surely they fit Elliott’s criteria as well as Maldini’s vision. Then get Sanches too with money from sales and let’s call it a day.

  2. Until Red Bird finalise the deal to takeover in September, nothing will happen with incoming players. It is yet to be determined if they even have capital and are willing top open up the purse strings. Knowing American owners, I do not foresee cash to start raining down upon our team.

  3. @Milan Fan very true. Missing out on botman was huge. I don’t what’s wrong with Elliot. Sometimes one must look outside the box especially now we have a good chance in the Champions league.

  4. Just sign Lang, Asesio, ziyech Bremer Sanchez and the De ketelaere and that Malmo cB
    Sell salaemaeka, Romagnoli will leave on free

  5. Too much money for a guy who barely have played in 3 years, with 1 year left in his contract. And 6m a year lol maybe some other day kid

  6. Origi on the way .. better get Italian Berradi on right winger.. on Trequestra get ketelaere.. on Centre back we need Milenkovic as we know Botsman go to Newcastle..
