The 27 year old joined the Spanish giants from Mallorca in 2014 and has made 190 appearances, scoring 37 goals.

The Spanish international has been frustrated at a lack of playing time under Carlo Ancelotti and doesn’t expect that to change if he puts pen to paper on fresh terms.

He has been linked with a move to PSG, while both Arsenal and AC Milan hold interest in the player.

However, according to Marca, Asensio could be playing under Unai Emery at Aston Villa next season.

The report states that Emery wants to have Asensio as part of his project next season and has taken steps to try and convince him to join.

Villa would be an interesting move for Asensio with the club having qualified for the Conference League next season and seemingly on the up under Emery.

Marca adds that the attacker has yet to make a final decision on his future and will continue to study all the proposals he receives.

Asensio has only started 15 La Liga matches this season, but has provided an impressive 15 goal contributions in 30 league appearances.

The Spaniard will want to play regularly next season with Euro 2024 next summer.

He recently lost his place in the Spain squad for the qualifiers against Scotland and Norway in March.

He will likely say his goodbyes to Madrid fans this weekend when Los Blancos conclude their campaign against Athletic Bilbao at The Bernabeu.
