Pedri Gonzalez urged Real Madrid UK forward to sign for Barcelona next summer, as his contract set to expire.
An intriguing development in the FIFA World Cup is that Marco Asensio seems to get along well with the Barcelona players.
The Real Madrid forward was among the standout performers in Spain’s opening-round 7-0 victory over Costa Rica. The attacker praised Gavi and Alejandro Balde, among other Barcelona players, after the game.
This followed rumors that Barcelona was interested in signing Asensio, whose deal with Real Madrid expires at the end of the current campaign. He is one of many players whose futures at Santiago Bernabeu for the upcoming campaign are uncertain.
Asensio’s future is still largely unknown, despite rumors that Real Madrid may offer the attacker a contract extension.
Asensio’s future was discussed by Barcelona midfielder Pedri in a recent press conference, and during that exchange, he added fuel to the rumors linking the Real Madrid forward to a move to Barcelona.
He is very talented. As for his contract, we’ll have to wait and see, but all good players must play for Barça.
We’ll have to wait and see how his contract plays out, but he has a lot going for him. He must make the choice, Pedri stated in an interview with El Partidazo de COPE.
The 20-year-old Barcelona star, who ran the Spanish midfield against Costa Rica quite well, was crucial in providing the transition into the final third.
Asensio, on the other hand, has remained mum regarding his plans. But given the Catalans’ extensive networking within the Spanish national team, it is possible that Barcelona will approach the forward sooner rather than later.
To predict Asensio’s future, however, would be premature. Real Madrid is well aware of the credentials and experience the Spaniard possesses, despite the fact that he has had recent form and fitness issues.
After the World Cup, there may be a lot of clarity, and Asensio’s performance there could have a significant impact on how things turn out for him in the upcoming campaign.
