Real Madrid striker Marco Asensio has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
The right winger has scored the most goals of his LaLiga career this season, finding the back of the net 10 times with Carlo Ancelotti, but at 26 he has offered very little in other aspects of his game.
With zero assists in the league, United would be signing an attacking player who is not known for scoring goals or registering assists. And I don’t see how that solves any of our problems.
On the air, Benito says: “Mendes wants to take Asensio to United.”

Asensio recently hired Mendes as his agent, according to AS, and in an attempt to see him from Madrid’s perspective, a player in the midst of contract discussions does not make that decision to negotiate an easy deal.
They seem to be groping other clubs, using Mendes’ in-game connections to get the best possible sporting and financial package. Welcome to silly season!
Real Madrid would be losing someone they consider a squad player, exactly as is happening this summer at United with Jesse Lingard, although the England international’s contract is due to expire at the end of this month.
Asensio could reassess his decision after Kylian Mbappé’s march to Madrid collapsed.
