Marco Asensio’s agent Horacio Gaggioli was quoted in a piece published in saying that the young star will stay in Real Madrid this summer.

“No doubt about his future. He will not leave the club. He’s improving a lot and I believe that the next season will be very important for him. He will stay in Madrid,” said Gaggioli.

Asensio delivered some shocking quotes during the 2018 FIFA World Cup when he was asked about an offer from Liverpool. “We’ll talk about that after the tournament,” he said, suggesting that he could potentially consider that offer.

It’s clear that Asensio is a crucial player in Real Madrid’s plans and his role could be even more important next season knowing that Julen Lopetegui is a big fan of his potential and that Cristiano Ronaldo might leave the club during this transfer window. He is still 22 years old so he will need relevant minutes to keep progressing.
