SportEarly brings to you latest news regarding the Newcastle United and all its update, we are seen a little hope from Real Madrid camp as they Wants star player to take a decision of himself.
This summer, Eddie Howe is looking to remedy his team’s goal drought by bringing in a talented wide attacker, and Marco Asensio is the most recent name on Newcastle United’s want list.
The 26-year-old battled for playing time at Real Madrid last season and is out of contract next year, according to a report from Sky Sports. Los Blancos may need to make a profit this summer rather than take the chance of losing him for free in 2023.
Asensio hasn’t yet hit his best, therefore according to Paddy Kenny, signing him for Newcastle would be “amazing.”
He stated to Football Insider that he is a possibility if a winger is desired. He has a tonne of experience and has participated in many games for Real Madrid. He is also a Spanish international.”
Asensio joined Real in 2015 after leaving RCD Mallorca, and since then, he has made 235 appearances across all competitions, tallying 49 goals and 24 assists.

The Spaniard, who has featured in 29 matches and contributed to 11 goals, may have played his last game for Real.
Asensio made 42 appearances overall last season, scoring 12 goals and dishing out two assists.
However, the 26-year-old only started 19 of 38 La Liga games (or 50%) and two of 13 Champions League games (or 15%), thus his future remains uncertain. Asensio would play regularly for Newcastle, although it is unclear whether he supports the initiative.
“If Newcastle could bring in a name like that from Real Madrid, it simply shows their desire again,” continued Kenny. This signature would be amazing. He is a fantastic age, therefore I think it would be a nice signing.
“I’m aware that he lacks Premier League experience, but several of the other players they acquired lacked it as well. You just have to hope that your scouting methodology is accurate and that he is competent enough for the Premier League.
Asensio would benefit the team because he outperformed Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Bruno Guimaraes in terms of league goals scored (10 to 8).
