Marco Asensio’s serious knee injury could prompt Real Madrid to keep Napoli target James Rodriguez, it is warned.
Asensio was stretchered off during Madrid’s penalties win against Arsenal in the International Champions Cup on Tuesday evening.
Los Blancos later confirmed the winger had ruptured not only the ACL in his left knee but also his external meniscus, effectively ending his season before it had even started.
As a result, AS reports it could ‘change the future’ of James and that the club will make a decision on the Colombian later today.
However, the newspaper still expects the 28-year-old to be sold.
Instead, the injury could have ramifications on Arsenal’s proposed loan deal for Dani Ceballos, once linked with Milan.
