In the current transfer market frenzy, PSG continues to captivate global football enthusiasts. The latest buzz surrounded Spanish forward Marco Asensio, with some media outlets suggesting a potential move to Bayer Leverkusen in Germany. However, journalist Florian Plettenberg's information, debunked by PSG, quickly dispelled the swirling speculations.
Renowned transfer insider Fabrizio Romano promptly contradicted the rumors, stating, "Paris Saint-Germain ensures Marco Asensio will not leave the club in the final days of the transfer market. He is expected to stay." Given the confidence bestowed upon the Spanish player by coach Luis Enrique following his recovery from injury, the departure of the 28-year-old forward seems increasingly unlikely.
