Marco Asensio shone in the Champions League quarter-finals against Bayern Munich in both games. In the first leg, Bale was replaced by the Spaniard in the second half and he gave the assist to Cristiano Ronaldo in the winning goal. In the second leg, Asensio scored a superb goal to finish with the German side. The supporters were shocked by these amazing performances.
However, this is not new for Marco Asensio. In his first season with Los Blancos, Marco Asensio is breaking every record. The 21-year-old winger has scored in every competition. He started the season scoring a great goal in the European Supercup against Sevilla. Then, he has also scored in Copa del Rey, La Liga and the Champions League.
It wasn’t always easy for him because he stayed out of Zidane’s list in many games. Now, at the end of the season and with the titles to be decided, he has shown that the manager can count on him in big clashes.
These great performances have called the attention of many big European clubs. Los Blancos have already said that Asensio will continue with the first squad the next season and he won’t be given on loan again -he played last season with Espanyol-.
Real Madrid are receiving many offers for Marco Asensio. The most important bid has been made by Liverpool. According to the radiostation Cadena Cope, the Reds have offered up to €50M for the Spanish winger, but Florentino Pérez has not hesitated to reject the bid. Marco Asensio is a jewel and he will continue many more years in the Spanish capital.
In his first season at Real Madrid, he has played 29 official games, more than 1500 minutes. In this time, he has found the net 9 times and he has given 3 assists. The goals against Bayern Munich and Sevilla -both in the European Supercup and Copa del Rey- are his masterpieces in his season debut with the European champions.
