Tottenham and Milan have sought to reinforce themselves in the Real Madrid in the last summer market. The English club has not succeeded, while the Italian has managed to extend the loan of Brahim Díaz for two more seasons.
But the great objective of both teams was achieve Marco Asensio’s ‘yes’. However, the Spanish international is clear that his objective was to stay at Real Madrid and to continue to shape a story that was stopped short by a serious injury in a pre-season friendly game in the summer of 2019.
Asensio has bet heavily on his continuity at Real Madrid, where he is now in his sixth season. It is a whole to white. The forward knows that his performance in the last two seasons has not been as expected and in search of recovering his best version, he is determined. The injury suffered two summers ago has weighed down, but the Spanish international feels that his football may still lead him to the start at the Real Madrid.
A NEW ASSESSMENT
It is not an easy challenge considering the enormous offensive arsenal that he has Ancelotti. In principle, and as seen in the early stages of the season, Asensio has four great rivals looking for a hole in the titular trident: Benzema, Bale, Hazard and Vinicius.
That is why the coach is working on inventing a new Asensio, more focused on the center of the field than on the attack. An area of the field where Madrid is fairer of troops despite the last minute incorporation of Camavinga. Ancelotti understands that this reconversion can be good for the team, due to its qualities, and for the player, to have more prominence and thus recover its best version.
Already in the final part of last season Asensio it showed that confidence had returned to his head. Without still recovering the verticality that he showed to the world in his first years as a Madridista, his game was more effective and only bad luck and the posts prevented him from closing the season with a higher number of goals. Between League and Champions he played 46 games, achieving seven so many.
