REAL MADRID ace Marco Asensio could be set to sign a three-year extension at the Santiago Bernabeu, reports suggest.
Asensio, 26, has been previously linked with a move to Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham ever since bursting onto the scene at Real in 2016.
According to SER, however, Los Blancos want to hold showdown talks with the winger’s representatives and extend his stay in Madrid by even offering to raise his salary.
The Spain international has struggled to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s line-up with Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior and 2022 Ballon d’Or Winner Karim Bezema ahead of him.
Previous reports suggested the Spaniard was not content with his role in the team but he has changed his mind as he still gets enough opportunities as a sub.
Therefore, the versatile attacker could be keen to put pen to paper on a new deal with the reigning European champions.
His agent Jorge Mendes, though, appears to want a longer deal with an even higher wage bill.
Nevertheless, Real are keen to hold on to Asensio and will require a response before the 2022 World Cup which will likely see him getting called up by Spain boss Luis Enrique.
Arsenal appear keen on adding more firepower up front with the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard firing on all cylinders already.
The same goes for Tottenham, who want to add reinforcement next to Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski.
