Marco Asensio signs Real Madrid extension until 2023


Real Madrid have secured the long-term future of Spanish starlet Marco Asensio, signing him on until 2023, as reported on their official website.

The 21-year-old’s previous contract lasts until 2022 but the club wanted to reward the player for a fine start to the new campaign.

Marco Asensio’s advances at club level have seen him earn recognition on the international stage, debuting for Spain’s senior side in May last year. He is already a European Champion at under-19 level and was unlucky not to add a second title to his name, this time at under-21 level, as Spain fell to Germany in the Final of the 2017 UEFA European U21 Championship.

Marco Asensio scored two stunning efforts in home and away clashes against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup in August, and has added a further two from six appearances in La Liga.

He joins a solid core of Real Madrid players to commit their future to the club, including Isco, Dani Carvajal, Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Raphael Varane.

As a sign of the regard with which Real Madrid hold the Spanish prospect, a rumoured €500 million release clause has been included in his new deal.

Marco Asensio will appear at a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu on Friday at 2:00pm CEST.
