Real Madrid star Marco Asensio is ready to leave the club next month after failing to agree a new contract with the Los Blancos.

The Spanish international is out of contract in Madrid at the end of the 2022/23 season, with the 27-year-old is attracting major transfer interest from the Premier League.

Asensio previously confirmed he is unsure over the next step in his career, with reports from Caught Offside stating he is no closer to an answer.

However, the situation has evolved in recent days, as he looks to work towards a resolution at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Reports from the The Athletic's Real Madrid correspondent Mario Cortegana claim Asensio has now made the decision to bring down the curtain on his time in Madrid.

The key focus for the Mallorcan winger is a first team role elsewhere with Arsenal and Aston Villa leading the race to sign him.

If Marco Asensio completes a summer exit, he will leave the club with three La Liga and three Champions League titles to his name.

According to Daniele Longo, one of the clubs interested in the services of Asensio are AC Milan. The Serie A giants have been linked with a move for Asensio for quite a long time. They are still involved in the race to sign the Spaniard, though they are not one of the frontrunners.

AC Milan are, in fact, facing immense competition from a host of clubs across Europe. Curiously, their arch-rivals Inter Milan have been linked with a move for the attacker, who will become a free agent in the summer.

In 285 competitive matches for Real Madrid, Asensio has a track record of scoring 61 goals and providing 32 assists. He has also won several titles, including the Champions League, La Liga, and most recently, the Copa Del Rey.

Asensio's pedigree at the highest level of football makes him an appealing target for most clubs across Europe. AC Milan are no exception, as the club look to shore up their options in the attacking department.

The Rossoneri, though, are likely to struggle in competing with other clubs in the race to sign Marco Asensio. They are instead in talks with Real Madrid over a permanent deal for Brahim Diaz, who is keen on remaining at San Siro after spending three years on loan.
