Tottenham could be handed a second chance at signing Marco Asensio, with Real Madrid happy to sell if a ‘good offer’ comes in for him.
That’s according to Sport, who say the Spaniard is getting ever closer to a move away from the Bernabeu, having failed to establish himself under Carlo Ancelotti thus far.
They explain that Asensio is ‘not happy’ with his role under the Italian, who has not started him in any of the six games so far and instead afforded him 68 minutes in five substitute appearances.
Being left on the bench for the recent clash with Valencia has ‘provoked’ the player, with the ‘threat’ of an exit now on the table.
There were offers in the summer for him to leave, with a recent report stating he was a ‘top target’ for Tottenham as Nuno Espirito Santo wanted him as a key player for the club.
This has since been backed up by El Larguero, say the newspaper, who they report saying Asensio had a ‘very important offer’ from Spurs on the table.
The player ultimately turned down the move to fight for his place in the Spanish capital, but that has not worked out well so far for him, with Ancelotti preferring Gareth Bale on the right and Rodrygo as a direct replacement.
Injuries haven’t changed that, with the Real Madrid boss rotating his options instead of bringing in Asensio.
Sport state that either the Spaniard improves his performances or his presence will ‘continue to diminish’ in the team.
At that point, Madrid will ‘open the door’ to a transfer, but they are not going to ‘give him away’ and will only let him go if a ‘good offer’ comes in for him.
At that point, they will not turn it down, particularly if the player asks to go as he has failed to establish himself as an important player.
Therefore, Tottenham seemingly have another chance to get their man, although they will need Daniel Levy to put money on the table to make it happen.
