It has been officially announced that Marco Asensio is now a player for PSG. The French club and the player have made the signing public, although the deal was completed two weeks ago in Paris.
The confirmation was delayed until 30 June, the date when his contract with Real Madrid was set to expire, and with the approval of new coach Luis Enrique, who was involved in finalizing the deal alongside Luis Campos and Nasser Al Khelaifi.
Marco Asensio, who played a significant role for Luis Enrique in the recent World Cup in Qatar, closes a seven-season spell at Real Madrid and embarks on a new chapter in Paris.
In his new club, he aims for more playing time, a greater role in the team, and an improved salary.
Asensio’s earnings will increase from the four million he earned at Real Madrid to a net figure of around seven million.
The deal, negotiated by Jorge Mendes, who has been managing Asensio’s affairs for the past year, extends his contract until 2026, with the hope of adding further achievements to his already impressive CV.
After winning 17 titles and making 286 appearances for Real Madrid, scoring 61 goals and providing 28 assists, Asensio departs the club.
Although he always demonstrated great potential, he was unable to secure a regular place in the starting lineup.
It is his desire for more consistent playing time that prompted him to make the decision to leave, despite receiving a renewal offer from Real Madrid that slightly improved his conditions.
After careful consideration, Asensio declined the offer and departs the club after featuring in 51 games and scoring 12 goals last season.
