If something changes in the heads of Asensio and Ceballos between now and August 31 then we will adapt,

“He is important as long as he is a Real Madrid player,”

There are some of the things that Carlo Ancelotti said regarding Marco Asensio’s situation at the club. “Important [because he’s part of the team]” is something we’ve heard quite a few times already, not just about Marco but also for plenty of players that have come and gone. Yet, Marco doesn’t seem to have a clear path to the exit door, but also doesn’t wanna stay and...well, he doesn’t have a renewal offer that I’ve heard of either. So, if nothing else, his immediate future does look a little complicated. On the practical side though, this probably equals to “bench”.

So, what do you think of Asensio’s current situation?
