Asensio spent last season on loan at Espanyol and was given the chance to make his mark in the Spanish capital after a solid pre-season. He promptly blew the expectations out of the water with a sensational start to the new campaign.

While he hasn’t been an automatic starter, the 21-year-old has remained a part of the rotation at the Santiago Bernabeu. He announced himself on the world stage on Tuesday with a stunning performance off the bench against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League, one that included a goal.
