It's Melchor meaning Marco is really gone :( RIP my Username.


Narretz

Asensio is still around for another 50 years


NotHarryRedknapp

But After the 25th he becomes Descensio


rockafellla

I mean you can sell your username to a Milan or Liverpool fan 😉


tcreo

I offer 2 year loan with option to buy for 3$ + another 1$ as a bonus if we win CL with Asensio


AiLover2322

as /u/Ask_Asensio's agent I demand an agent fee of 2$ paid to me, otherwise there's no deal.


gantek

I'm /u/Ask_Asensio 's brother. I'll be joining him at either Liverpool or milan. This is unconditional


ThatWeirdItalian

I report that /u/Ask_Asensio is close to signing a new deal with Real Madrid and he won’t join AC Milan despite their interest.

How much is that in Schrute Bucks?


jedifolklore

I know it’s sad, but you could always change it to Ask_Modric, and it could stay relevant for another 10 years :)


TastyTacoTonight

You change usernames?


jedifolklore

Yeah TIL that Reddit usernames are permanent, well OP will have to keep the legend of Asensio alive lol


toxinwolf

Or he can become a Liverpool/Milan fan


Lord_Sauron

Plastics on r/soccer? Well I never, what an outrageous insinuation good sir!!


fastfowards

asensio to liverpool was a 2017 fifa transfer and to milan is a 2022 one


Nico777

Hey :/


redditaccountplease

Cheer up, 2022 Milan are Serie A winners and in the Champions League


Nico777

Eh, we're still pretty broke, losing important players for free, not renewing the ones we have, our sporting directors' contracts run out in 3 days and haven't been renewed yet either. I'll cheer up when these situations are resolved, and maybe when our owners stop seeing us as their piggy bank. So it'll probably take a while.


sbsw66

arent you only broke for a few more weeks, then new owners?


Nico777

Nope, new owners come in in September. And even then, they're still an investment fund, I'm not expecting drasting changes in expenses.


sbsw66

A smart fund (which I believe Redbird to be) should recognize that Serie A is ripe for investment. Relatively cheap league at the moment, but with immense history and worldwide followings. Someone needs to knock the first domino down, this might be that chance.


Nico777

The first domino should be a private stadium, but that's never gonna happen with the morons that keep getting elected in Milan.


Triforcesarecool

You just got divock, you will be fine


IntensifiedRB2

Idk if this is sarcasm but excited to see how he does with some regular minutes


GOR098

You need to get a good TV Deal. Current Serie A TV deal seems bad compared to other leagues.


Nico777

That just reflects the overall economic situation in the country. Almost half struggles to get to the end of the month, and it's only gonna get worse with inflation skyrocketing. The number of people able to afford subscriptions with high prices and shitty quality will keep decreasing.

EpiDeMic522

The audacity for a Spurs fan to throw shade at a Liga champion. 😂 I love it!


-___-___-__-___-___-

I remember him being a beast at Real. Was it that ACL that messed things up for him?


[deleted]

Has never been the same for us after that. Sad how he ended like this. Once Zidane was praising him for having the second best left foot in the league after Messi. Good times.


Top-Document-9947

He stil has the same left foot, he lost some pace but he already was already having his first mediocre season before he did his acl


Top-Document-9947

The acl thing is 100 percent true but it's a bit overestimated by some people, am I right?


RiceWithoutVeggies

To be fair to Asensio, the whole team was atrocious that season. It's hard to record consistent performance when most of the players surrounding you are having their worst season of their career.


mamasbreads

He is just incredibly one dimensional. He genuinely did have the second best left foot in la liga.. but thats it. He couldnt be a striker because he is one footed, not strong or quick enough to challenge defenders. As a winger, he doesnt have the pace or trickery to jump the man. As a midfielder he doesnt have the creativity or technique to distribute the ball. He's an average player with 1 world class trait. Great for youtube, but he dissapears for hours on end in between those bangers.


conanomatic

Imo he had an unbelievable string of games that led people to overhype him. He was never going to be a balon dor winner, but people acted like he would. Admittedly, I thought he would be an undisputed starter at a top club at this point in his career though.


Dyren123

You talking about Vini?


not_old_redditor

> Sad how he ended like this Dude he's 26 potentially going to Liverpool (or Milan), I'd kill to "end" it like that.


gianni_

Yeah seriously that’s not a bad end or even an end at all. 26 being old nowadays is hilarious


Deluxe07

Damm he’s still 26?


Soren_Camus1905

Oh man :(


tebby101

He is a forward stuck in a midfielders body. You know who he'd do well under? Jose. The man can destroy a locker room but man does he know the optimal position for any player.


renome

The same guy who played Modric on the wing and Pepe in midfield? I think he starts with a formation in mind, and not the personnel.


Opie_Winston

He declined before that. Dude went from going forward and challenging everybody to always look for the safe back/side pass. A lot of people forget that and think his decline was due to the ACL injury. I found an old comment of mine about this. His ACL was in july 2019 and I looked at the seasons before that: > He played more games than Bale in 17/18 and 18/19 and Ronaldo wasn't even in the squad in 18/19. He had 30 and 32 games in la liga those seasons. > In 18/19 he scored just a single goal in 30 games and played more minutes than Bale (who had 8 goals in 29 games). He had the second highest number of minutes played out of all the attacking players. > Even in the 17/18 season Asensio had more played minutes than Bale. In 32 games he scored only 6 times. In CHL he scored once in 12 games. > Thats 7 goals in 62 games as a winger for Real Madrid in two seasons... before the injury, > It wasn't the injury. He was lackluster even before then injury. Compare the way he played in the first games to the season before the injury. It's night and day.


not_old_redditor

But I mean it's pretty silly to base your entire stat analysis on just goals. He's not a #9 and he's not Cristiano.


Opie_Winston

I'm not. I've watched every single game with him. We talked about it in real time back then in the match threads for at least an entire season before his ACL injury. Stats are just the easiest way to show his decline since people somehow forgot about it.


itsmydrunkaccount

Agreed 100%. He had some amazing goals and people overlooked a lot of his flaws during development because of that. Outside of shooting I've never been amazed by him even pre-acl


king2pac

Name just one player who wasn't trash that year aside Ramos


king2pac

tbf the entire team was trash that season.. Modric, Kroos, etc were so bad we thought they were done.


Halal_Madrid

He was never the fastest, and the ACL put a nail in that coffin. He’s very skilled, just not very mobile.


lagrandesgracia

He wasn't vinicius fast, but he was no slouch.


mamasbreads

hes not explosive and never was. He's good on a full counter attack from our box, but he never had the pace or trickery to jump the man. And he never had the creativity to make up for it.


supsip

He lost some of his pace after the ACL injury. He was kind of bad the season after Ronaldo left but so was most of the Madrid squad that year. This season he’s been pretty decent but it’s pretty much been in patches and has kind of fallen off since the start of the season tbh.


arturmauricio

I remember when Asensio started to play at Madrid. He looks like a world class player but the time show me he not is what I think before.


hamzaiswack

Injuries man, guy oozed talent and class


Kurosawasuperfan

He doesn't having the best mentality too. Madridistas will never forget when he basically ran from pressure at his peak, saying that fans should ask/expect more from other stars, not from him. He's basically the opposite of Vini in that aspect, and that's the main reason why Vini has developed in these past 3 years, and Asensio didn't. Now that he lost his speed and his overall game didn't evolve, he has nothing to set him apart.


Terran_it_up

>saying that fans should expect more from other stars, not from him I'd forgotten about that, that was such a dumb comment from him


hamzaiswack

Except for that left foot of his


arturmauricio

True. Injuries finished his career.


City-Gold

Not true. He had his worst season before the ACL injury.


king2pac

Not true. Everyone had their worst season that year. Even Modric was so trash we thought he was done. That season was just a dark season for Madrid.


City-Gold

That’s irrelevant. People claiming injuries ended his career and pretend like he was flawless before. The fact that it was the first year he became a regular starter and was one of if not his worst years. He then got injured, and been occupation around that same level pre injury sense. He never got better. He never lived up to his super sub moments. I’m sure the injury didn’t help, but let’s not all pretend like it was the turning point.


Studge

> Not true. Everyone had their worst season that year. So...it is true?


lagrandesgracia

Still does. Kid scored a hattrick this season and everything. The thing is that he never really lived up to his assumed potential. Everyone was calling him the future of Madrid back when he was 20 years old. He's now 26 and not much better than he was 6 years ago.


JambalayaonToast

how reliable is this guy? Can't see Liverpool being that interested in him


Ask_Asensio

Tier 1 inside our Tier 1 sources. Only the club official handle is more trusted.


Mr_XemiReR

He was/is Tier 1, but doesn't tell info very often anymore. Hard to say why


Res3925

> but doesn't tell info very often anymore   That’s why he’s Tier 1 for us. He doesn’t spread worthless information and will only say something that is reliable.


SageKAoki

He’s the most tier 1 of all the tier 1s.


joseba_

>Hard to say why Because COPE are embarrassing


Lambchops_Legion

>Can't see Liverpool being that interested in him It really just depends on how much he's interested in being a 5th attacker on a CL contender vs a starter on a lesser team


Itz_Galaxium

Foreign Tier 1's know fuck all about Liverpool, Porto's tier 1 linked us to Otavio a few days ago and that was shut right down.


Esco9

We arent


Ask_Asensio

It would not be strange at all though. Asensio would be on a cheap and on relatively low wages and with Salah running down his contract and leaving on a free next season there would be vacuum in that RW spot. I mean if Salah is gone who else does Livepool have for that spot ? Elliott ?


Hoodxd

Asensio doesn't have the pace for him to be a winger under Klopp, neither does Elliot. Only spot I could see Asensio is in that RCM role, same as Harvey Elliot for example


idkwhatnametopick7

They would obviously buy someone that fits them better, impossible to replace with someone on similar level to salah but its not like elliott and asensio are the only options


Ask_Asensio

Indeed but who ? World Class RW's are extremely precarious in current football. Guys like Chiesa, Coman, Rodrygo are impossible. If we sell Asensio i'm pretty sure we are going to contact Bayern for Gnabry. I guess Raphinha if he hasn't been sold but he will be a lot more expensive than Asensio. Maybe someone like Pino or Bowen ?


D1794

Unlikely Antony is bought this summer if the price tag Ajax sets is true. Could go in for him next summer if he has a good season. Seems to fit the profile


chiddie

I've heard us linked with Gnabry as well.


idkwhatnametopick7

Salah wasnt exactly the hottest name in the market when pool got him, also diaz was linked with the likes of Everton the window just before he went there, alot can change in 6 months i guess


ImWaaal

I'd love to see Bowen join


SnoopWhale

Mark my words, Chiesa will move to England within three years.


Classic_Transition_7

To Tottenham nonetheless


joseba_

>World Class RW's are extremely precarious in current football This comment is said about literally every position, I've heard it about full backs, goalies, strikers and now apparently RW too, means absolutely nothing.


Liverlakefc

We are not buying a midfielder because we don't want to buy just a stopgap there is no way we would consider buying him


Esco9

Jota even though he’s poor as a RW imo, Elliott yeah. Idk who would or could replace Salah but it isn’t Asensio this window at least.


PornFilterRefugee

I really doubt they would think Asensio can replace Salah lol


Ask_Asensio

Oh he's not replacing Salah at all. Anyone Liverpool brings would be a downgrade for that position just look at the market. The Top 5 most rated RW in Transfermakrt are : * Salah (90M) * Chiesa (65M) * Gnabry (65M) * Rodrygo (60M) * Coman (60M)


denisorion

Castilejo ( 1B)


Esco9

Give me Chiesa for 65m any day of the week


Luis0224

There's no way any of those teams let's any of those players go for any amount of money. We'd probably be the most like to let rodrygo go and even then I don't think we let him go anytime soon Edit - gnabry too


RedShenron

Juve's gonna ask 100+.


PornFilterRefugee

But then why bother bringing in Asensio? We already have Jota as a back up, and Elliott can play there as well


the_studge

Jota as a winger is very meh, especially on the right.


Techno_Six

Jota on the left is not even close to “meh”.


PornFilterRefugee

So’s Asensio lol Jota is a fine backup there


Kyle_did_911

Kinda besides the point isn't it? We're likely looking for an undervalued player or someone with great potential that wouldn't be in the top 5 of transfermarkt. Plus we'd be looking for someone with a lot of pace for RW. Which asensio does not have. So unless we're making a full switch to 4231 and asensio to play as a cam, this doesn't make sense.


TheConundrum98

Absolutely no way we are in for Asensio, doesn't fit at all


breakinb

He is literally tier 1 so you're wrong


Kyle_did_911

Tier one for Madrid, not Liverpool. They could be in for him but it's more likely that it's his agent drumming up interest using our name or that we are just monitoring him along with 100 other players.


breakinb

>Tier one for Madrid, not Liverpool Yeah, it's a Madrid player news...


Kyle_did_911

The part that's definitely true is that he's not signing a new deal and will leave.


TheConundrum98

Tier one for one side so the news is comig from one side, it's what he's been told, doesn't mean it's true. He's too slow to be a Liverpool winger and not defensively good enough to play in a midfield 3. I believe the Otavio rumors more than this


Hyrcania42

Yeah to sign him on a free transfer for medium wages as a replacement for someone like Oxlade-Chamberlain would actually make a lot of sense. Having a RW to start for Salah would be massive especially after last season when it was clear he needed a month off to recover from AFCON but we literally couldn’t afford that and it probably cost us the major trophies in the end. I have to think a fit and on-form Salah makes s difference in the matches against Tottenham and Real.


eternalgrey_

Julian Ward is that you? Would love some more info


Sharcbait

I mean we lost Sadio, Origi and Taki all in this window, might be offering him to come be cup depth and the occasional league start.


yo_lookatthat

Maybe Everton are and he's being cheeky


whiskeyinthejaar

Milan 🤝 Real Madrid Loanee


ILuvMemes4Breakfast

feel like liverpool are too smart to be interested in him. even if they give him a minamino role which would be very limited game time, surely they can find someone half the price who runs more and has more to give.


innatejuiciness

Are they just using Liverpool to drive up the price? I don't see them being interested in Asensio.


NordWitcher

Klopp reportedly wanted him at one point when his stock was high. He’s dropped off since then due to injuries, form, etc but he was special under Zidane.


SmokingOctopus

We offered €50million for him in 2017.


Evered_Avenue

Almost certainly this.


Alert_Garlic

Press X to doubt


anthonyvardiz

Damn have fun in Milan, Marco.


burningbarn8

I doubt he has offers from Liverpool.


burnerbutnotreally1

>Liverpool Doubt


LewsTherin177

One kiss is all it takes 😏


azifs

i cannot see us being interested, what does he even bring?


Dildo_Warfare

Improves our handsome quota in the squad I guess?


Bangbangkadang

Bangers


Zhidezoe

An upgraded Shaqiri


stpstrt

Average player with a magic left foot. There’s that I guess…


GuessImCensored

No he does not have an offer from Liverpool..


joseba_

I remember when Marca claimed Liverpool made a 180M offer for him like 4 years ago or so lol


Modalchemist

Just get rid of him, he's a huge liability


boardAF

Man United should sign him. Have a feeling he'd be a beast in the EPL.


PiIICIinton

I definitely agree with one of these points


CudaBarry

LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOO


NativeRecluse

Arteta come get your boy


BreweryBuddha

No chance he goes to Liverpool, and thank god


ferkk

YES!! About damn time!


CCBC11

If he goes to Milan, I'm not willing to predict how he'll do, although I think it probably won't be any good. But in Liverpool it could be interesting. Most of the players that Klopp bought have improved under him and we know Asensio has potential. Maybe he can step up as a player.


DragoonAle

The disrespect on padre smh


Top-Document-9947

Can I ask why you think he could flop in Milan?


CCBC11

As I said, I'm not sure that he would do badly in Milan. It's just that he seems like the kind of player that usually does badly when leaving their previous club. In Milan's case, he looks to me like a Brahim 2.0, but much more expensive and he probably has the Real Madrid attitude, which won't help him. But he could turn out very good as well. He has potential and talent, maybe Pioli can get the best out of him.


Top-Document-9947

I mean there are many players who actually exploded with us, and much less that didn't perform. True, brahim was the lost bet of the season but you have to look aswell at Theo Hernandez, Leao, Bennacer, Giruoud, Tomori. And Asensio has his problems I know but he is still a world class talent and a quality player, he does make those magic goals he does make those magic passes still, and he know what it's like to win in Europe. Right now we need players to up the quality of the team and i can see why they could like Asensio. Also I think that making him the technical point of reference of the attack could be good for him


CCBC11

Asensio strikes me as not exactly the same type of player as those that you mentioned, but still yes, he could turn out good. If I were a Milan fan, I would be excited with him coming, but also cautious. Anyways, if he goes to Milan, hope he does good, I like players who score great goals.


Top-Document-9947

I just mean that if you look closely actually we usually do get the best out of our players, Leao came as a striker but he was adapted to winger by Pioli which suits him and his speed much better, Theo was constantly on the bench for Real and was labeled as mediocre, he is the best left back in the league and he has improved so much in defense and still unstoppable in offense


evilbob99

What’s the Real Madrid attitude


CCBC11

I mean, you probably get a bit cocky when you win multiple CLs in a row, even if you don't play that big of a part. Real Madrid is also one of the two most popular clubs in Spain, and ussually players from the big teams of the country feel a sense of superiority. I'm mostly extrapolating from what I see in Boca players here in Argentina.


uch_m

Pioli > that passion merchant


logdit

Asensios problem is his ACL. Hasn't been the same since, lost some pace and had a hard time to adapt.


CCBC11

Yes, I heard that. Still, last time he played with the national team he did fine. He probably won't be the next big thing, but can still be a solid player. I just think that Liverpool would be a better choice for him because he would be playing under one of the absolutely best managers in the world, who's known to have improved players. The advantage that Milan offers him is more possibilities to be in the starting eleven, but that can be a double edged sword: he may succumb to the pressure of not adapting inmediately to the club and benching him may demotivate him.


UnKwQw

He is a solid player. People expect him to be the next Ronaldo for some reason.


PiIICIinton

lmao no he doesn't


Halal_Madrid

Gonna be odd seeing him playing elsewhere. Hope he can nail down a spot as a 10 where he can show his brilliance.


TekpixSalesman

Is there any RW linked to Real nowadays? Last time I heard of Gnabry, but just rumors.


AcceleratingRiff

This is straight up tier 1


doge_IV

This surely mean we are going to sign someone, right?


lagrandesgracia

Dembele


Soren_Camus1905

What happened to this guy? He was supposed to be the next big thing right?


AbleFig

was never the same after his ACL injury


luckymethod

Around here we call it "the Arrivabene special".


Enartloc

Buy Gnabry please


jorgeelx

If he wants to play WC he will have to leave. He is not going to play in Madrid, Vinicius and Rodrigo are ahead of him. Even hazard if he is fit enough. On top of that Ancelotti is not going to make changes during the first part of the season. He likes to use same XI until someone is injured or suspended. He is an option for Luis Enrique but only if he plays and shows a good level. Milan could be a good fit, but in Liverpool he would find himself in same situation of Madrid. If he doesn't care about the WC running out his contract could be risky if he has not played a lot.


the_studge

I will love it, and I think I deserve it.


MelodicMachine1356

You definitely deserve it he's Real's best winger


stpstrt

What?


drobson70

We need depth as a winger. I still think if his salary is lower, it would be worth it.
