ARSENAL is said to have joined rival Tottenham to transfer Marco Asension from Real Madrid.
The future of midfielder Bernabeus is in the air, although he has helped them enjoy La Liga and the Champions League this season.
The position had only 12 months left until the end of the contract.
Madrid offered the 26-year-old an extra time, which he signed until June 20th.
However, the demands of the Spanish international team have not been fully met and he is expected to reject them.
Instead of losing it in vain next summer, Madrid decides to redeem it and sell it.
The player has previously performed in Tottenham and AC Milan.
Arsenal are now preparing to sign an agreement with it, the Daily Mirror reports.
According to a recent report, Gunners “contacted Asensis to find answers” to his and Real’s demands.
The former best player from Mallorca is looking for self-confidence to get regular starts that he didn’t get in Madrid.
Asensio will also be happy to stay in Madrid and play his last campaign before leaving in vain.
However, Madrid is looking for a solution and hopes to play its national role with Spain before resuming negotiations.
According to the latest report, Manchester United had also inquired about the situation in Assen.
However, they only inquired about it “informally” and have not yet applied.
