According to a recent report by Calciomercato, Newcastle United are leading the race to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid.
Right now, the Magpies are in a position that would have seemed unthinkable just a few years ago. They are approaching the top of the Premier League standings, continue to achieve results, have a strong squad and probably an even stronger manager.
They want to continue building their arsenal, unwanted pun, which makes sense given the financial resources they have at their disposal.
Marco Asensio is a new goal for Eddie Howe’s team with the belief that he can add further stability to the starting XI.
Unfortunately, while AC Milan are also very interested in taking him from Real Madrid, Newcastle are actually the main suitor, probably because they can pay him a lot of money.
If they make the move, they will reportedly do so during the next market window in January.
