Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio is ready to ditch the Laliga giants Real Madrid for AC Milan.
Spanish outlet Defensa Central reports that the player is not opposed to the idea of joining Milan in the summer after growing frustrated at Madrid where he has failed to cement a place in the first team.
The 26-year-old is yet to sign a new contract as he wants to be assured of his place in the team before making a move. He enjoyed a productive 2021/22 campaign at Real Madrid, producing a tally of ten goals and one assist in 35 appearances across all competitions, and believes that he can be productive with more game time.

Carlo Ancelotti however has preferred Rodrygo Goes over him in the last few weeks a move that has seen the Spanish consider his options.
Milan will likely delve into the market for a wide-attacker in the summer transfer window, with bolstering the right-wing berth a key objective because Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias have blown hot and cold.
