Newcastle United are interested in signing Marco Asensio, report Mundo Deportivo.
The 26-year-old’s contract with Real Madrid is set to expire in June 2023 and it is believed that Los Blancos have no intention of renewing it.
Asensio was linked with a transfer away from the Spanish city during the summer transfer window, with Manchester United expressing a keen interest in hiring the offensive midfielder.
Newcastle United, though, seems to be interested in the Spanish international as they have already been in touch with the player’s agents.
With the player free to sign pre-contractual agreements with other clubs from January 2023 onwards, it may be the interest of Real Madrid to sell Asensio during the winter transfer window so that they receive a transfer fee for his departure.
