Carlo Ancelotti confirms another Real Madrid star is seeking exit

Another big-name exit could well be on the cards at the Bernabeu

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has, on Thursday, confirmed that another high-profile member of the club’s squad is eyeing a departure from the club.

Los Blancos, of course, are fresh off bidding a surprise farewell to a long-time central figure at the club, in the form of Casemiro.

On the back of Aurelien Tchouameni’s big-money arrival in Spain’s capital, Brazilian international Casemiro sought out a new adventure, taking his talents to the Premier League with Manchester United.

And another member of Los Blancos’ ranks could well follow suit, ahead of the fast-approaching transfer deadline.

The player in question? Marco Asensio.

Speaking to the media on Thursday evening, Real’s beloved boss was asked for an update on the future of versatile attacker Asensio, amid speculation in the media that the aforementioned United have also set their sights on the Spanish international, amid ongoing efforts to reinforce the club’s frontline.

And Ancelotti was not at all shy in admitting that, as far as he is aware, ‘Asensio is looking to see if he can leave’.

The Italian added, though, that in the case of the Red Devils target staying put, ‘in September he will be 100% my player’.
