Real Madrid could look to replace Marco Asensio, if he leaves, with Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez or Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry.
Asensio has made 42 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos during the 2021/22 season, scoring 12 goals and providing two assists.
Mahrez has just completed his best season for the reigning Premier League champions, scoring 24 goals and providing nine assists in all competitions in 47 games, including seven strikes and a pair of assists in 12 Champions League appearances.
Asensio is being targeted both by Liverpool, as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah should he leave, and by AC Milan this summer.
Should Asensio leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, the Meringues could consider opening negotiations with representatives of Mahrez and Gnabry, according to Italian journalist Ekrem Konur.
Just like Asensio and Gnabry at their respective clubs, Mahrez is entering the final year of his contract with the Cityzens.
The Algerian wing magician scored at the Bernabeu in the second leg of the recently concluded Champions League semi-finals to put the Etihad side ahead 5-3 on aggregate before a fiery comeback from the home side.
It has been suggested that Manchester City are in the process of putting together a new contract to keep Mahrez at the club.
