Asensio has not always had it easy living in Madrid. He has had trouble securing a regular position on the team. In the 2016–17 season, the 27-year-old joined the first squad and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the finest young players in the world.
His anticipated potential was stunted by inconsistent play and a catastrophic ACL injury in later seasons, but the offensive midfielder/winger hybrid always found a way to contribute with significant goals and assists. The Spaniard has played a little role for Ancelotti this season despite contributing eight assists and 12 goals.
According to the Spanish publication AS, Asensio will shortly join PSG and sign a four- or five-year deal. With his departure to Paris, the Spaniard is anticipated to receive a huge pay rise, rising from a €4 million yearly salary to a €10 million gross annual agreement.
Marco Asensio anticipates a larger on-field sports involvement at Paris in addition to a pay rise from his current position at Real Madrid. This morning’s announcement by coach Galtier that Leo Messi is leaving PSG created a vacancy on the right wing. Asensio will want to reach new heights in Paris and launch a new career away from the Bernabeu after having his finest season of his career.
Asensio might not have to compete fiercely for a position in the team now that it has been confirmed that Messi is leaving PSG and that another superstar Neymar is also expected to leave. PSG is keen to capture their first UEFA Champions League championship.
