Manchester City Keeping Tabs On 22 Y/O Real Madrid Star: Good Fit For Pep’s Plans?

Marco Asensio has been linked with a move to Manchester City with the Spaniard said to be frustrated with his time on the sidelines this season. He has been sparingly used by Zidane and may seek an exit come June.

As history would suggest, it is not the easiest task for a young player to break into the first team at Real Madrid let alone become a star player for the club. Hence, it was quite surprising and welcoming as the world stood to watch as Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane gave young Marco Asensio a chance to become a star at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spaniard took the opportunity with both hands and scored important goals and has become an important midfield stay in the Madrid team. He has broken into the Spanish national camp as well and at the age of 22 looks set to develop into a world-class player into the future.

Marco Asensio had been in great form for club and country this season, for someone his age. The young Spaniard, who came to the foray under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane, has gone on to make a name for himself after scoring in the El Classico and starring for Spain in the national set-up during the last round of international matches.

Asensio’s progress was however hampered with his time on the bench and he is now far from becoming a regular midfielder in the Real Madrid starting XI. Ideally, he is set for a long lengthy club career at Real but with his first-team chances limited Real Madrid having a history of remorselessly cutting loose of players, you can never say never.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are in seriously frightening form. The Citizens are playing the best possible football in Europe at the moment. They are dispatching sides with absolute ease and the fluidity in attack looks unstoppable. The Citizens have scored over 100 goals already and are well on their way to winning the English Premier League.

The team is so heavily armed that the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva have to be content with just playing as substitutes. They also have a host of attacking midfielders in the form of Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne to mention a few. This would mean that a move to City will not guarantee Asensio the regular game time he is craving and the young man should consider all options before jumping boats.
