Italian League giants, Juventus, are allegedly targeting Real Madrid winger, Marco Asensio, as a replacement for Argentina national team star, Paulo Dybala, in the 2022 summer transfer market.
Italian giants, Juventus, are reportedly looking for new players to replace the Argentine national team player, Paulo Dybala.
Dybala is rumored to be leaving Juventus in the summer of 2022 on a free transfer with one of his prospective clubs being Inter Milan.
Paulo Dybala’s free transfer status emerged after not finding a contract extension agreement with Juventus.
Juventus had indeed opened negotiations with Paulo Dybala’s agent, Jorge Antun, regarding the new contract of the number 10 owner at the Allianz Stadium.
At that time, Juventus Sporting Director, Fabio Cherubini, confirmed that his party was in talks with the player. This is done to keep from losing Paulo Dybala.
However, Juventus will certainly have to find a replacement with Marco Asensio reportedly already on the list.
Reporting from Defensa Central, La Vecchia Signora has reportedly offered Asensio a contract to join in the summer of 2022.
The 2021/2022 season was a bad one for Asensio, having returned from a long injury two years ago.
While trying to rediscover his performance with Real Madrid, the Spanish national team striker had to be willing to be displaced from the main squad and lost to competition from young Brazilian winger, Rodrygo Goes.
Asensio lost his place at Real Madrid
Marco Asensio himself has appeared 24 times in the Spanish League for the 2021/2022 season. But of that amount, he did 10 times as a substitute. Special, he was still able to look sharp and scored eight goals.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will sign a young French national striker, Kylian Mbappe, in the summer of 2022.
In addition, the Spanish giants. Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Norwegian striker Erling Braut Haaland.
If this transfer happens, then Los Blancos can pair up two of the best strikers in the world. It is also reported that Real Madrid will make official contact with Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola.
This initial contact was made so that the club could see the possibility of signing the player in the summer.
If these two transfers happen, then Juventus will get more opportunities to sign Marco Asensio considering that he has a higher chance of being eliminated.
Marco Asensio himself is a player developed by the Mallorca academy. He briefly tasted playing for the B team before moving up to the Real Mallorca team in 2014.
Asensio moved to Real Madrid in 2015 and briefly tried his luck by playing for Catalan club Espanyol that same year.
In 2016, Asensio returned to Real Madrid and had become a mainstay of the French coach, Zinedine Zidane.
Juventus Can Get Asensio From Real Madrid
To get Marco Asensio’s contract, Juventus will certainly have no difficulty, because this player only has a year’s contract period.
If the contract is not extended, then Juventus can get Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio for free in the summer transfer window of 2023.
