The Real Madrid leadership intends to further increase the release clause in Marco Asencio's contract. The attacking player shines brighter with the "white ballet" team, and the Marka newspaper learns what the contract amounts are interested in potential buyers.
Real Florentino Perez's president has set as his personal goal to keep the 21-year-old talent at all costs, which erupted with two outstanding goals in the matches against Barcelona for the Super Cup of Spain. The construction entrepreneur considers Palma de Mallorca a player for the future to Los Blancos and therefore has a clear idea of how to mitigate potential attacks.
Last year Asencio signed a new contract with Real until 2022, and the release clause in it amounts to 350 million euros. Given the financial muscles demonstrated by Pari Saint-Germain to attract Neimar for 222 million, the current ransom did not calm Perez. He has decided to place Asencio on a single level with players like Tony Kroos, Luke Modric and Danny Sebayos, adding the 500m euros freeze clause. Thus, the only players in Real that are quoted higher in this respect are Isco (700 million euros) and the trio Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale (each valued at 1 billion euros).
Naturally, the increase in the Assessio contract clause will also be associated with a significant increase in its salary. It will jump from 3.5 million to 4.5 million euros a year. That means it will be four times higher than the one in his first contract with Real.
