Marco Asensio is quickly becoming the hottest property on the planet thanks to a number of stunning performances for Real Madrid and Spain.
After joining Real Madrid from Mallorca in 2014, Asensio has had to be patient for a chance in Los Blancos’ first team.
The 21-year-old had loan spells back at Mallorca and also at Espanyol before breaking through at the Bernabeu last term, scoring 10 goals and winning both La Liga and the Champions League.
Asensio has now scored on his Real Madrid debut in the UEFA Super Cup, Champions League, Copa Del Rey, La Liga, Champions League final and Spanish Super Cup, but it is the quality of his goals which is most striking.
The video below picks out 10 of his best efforts, all of which have been scored in the past 12 months. This boy is already something special, but he’s only going to get better. A scary thought.
