Barcelona considers signing Real Madrid star

At the end of the season, attacking midfielder Marco Asensio of Real Madrid will be a free agent, and reports indicate that Barcelona is becoming an unexpected suitor.

As reported by Mundo Deportivo, despite the fact that the Spanish international has had a rocky time of it at the Bernabeu due to injuries, Barca is still reportedly keeping tabs on him.

Although few predicted that Asensio would get a second shot at one of Madrid’s major rivals, he possesses excellent natural skill and might revitalize his career if given the chance.

Though Luis Figo is the most high-profile example, player transfers between these two La Liga powerhouses are quite uncommon.
