Milan failed in their attempt to sign Marco Asensio on a loan deal from Real Madrid this past summer.
Journalist Daniele Longo has reported that Milan had faced rejection from Asensio this past summer, even though Real Madrid were willing to loan him out. Ricky Massara and Paolo Maldini had tried for the Spaniard last summer and also for Isco.
The journalist has stated that Real Madrid were looking to sign Kylian Mbappe in the last few days of the window and that was the intention behind letting Asensio leave. But the Spaniard ended up rejecting the Rossoneri even though they approached the player.
