Marco Asensio, Spanish international midfielder was considering leaving Real Madrid during the transfer window. He had almost wanted a loan, his Agent revealed.
Asensio’s agent, Horacio Gaggioli, has revealed that there was an intention to find another club for Asensio in order for him to have a playing time. This was in place until Carlo Ancelotti gave him the promise of being included in his squad.
Asensio must have felt left out of Carlo Ancelotti squad for the club as he never got much playing time since returning from a knee injury.
The Spanish international got a hat trick on his first match this season against Mallorca. He got his brace in the 1st half and the hat trick in the second half in the 6:1 thrashing of Mallorca on Tuesday this week.
“We had been considering a loan for him to get back in form as soon as possible, either in Spain or abroad,” he told Cadena SER’s El Larguero show.”, Gaggioli said.
“There were no problems in that sense. But four days ago, Carletto (Ancelotti) told him to stay.
“We knew the quality Real Madrid had in midfield, probably the best in the world. So where would he play? It’s not that we had no faith in him, because he can also play on the wing.”, he continued.
Going further, he added that: “But we knew that the year after the injury was going to be difficult and Real Madrid can’t wait for anybody. They have to win every week and recovering from an injury isn’t easy at Real Madrid.
“We cannot be more grateful to Real Madrid.” he concluded.
