Lemar's agent, Arthur Poupel, about the recent contract negotiations:Thomas Lemar has 'no news' from Atletico, says agent
Thomas Lemar's representative says the Frenchman is open to an extension of his contract with Atletico Madrid, contrary to reports in Spain
Thomas has never refused to extend his contract. Atletico made us a first offer at the end of last year, we responded with a counter-offer in January. Since then, we have had no further news from them. Thomas is not at all closed to an extension in Madrid.
Barcelona has also been doing this to Leeds for Raphinha. Arsenal have operated in the same way, too, both with Raphinha and Gabriel Jesus. Chelsea are doing the same to Koundé. It's a normal thing, but people think this is somehow exclusive to Manchester United.So Bayern are doing to Barca what they’re doing to us. Good!
Source:The analysis on Asensio in Four Amigos Podcast: RM wants to get money for his sale and if there is a renewal offer it will be a subtle invitation to leave.
Mendes is moving him around a lot.
Marco Asensio knows he will not be a starter, he is in a World Cup year and in a good position for a big contract.
It's a similar case to Varane last summer, but with Asensio the preference for a sale is much clearer.
It's June 23, but I would be very surprised if he stays at Real Madrid.
Braaf, Aning, Rijkhoff in the second team, Malen in the first team. Dortmund are going full Dutch.
