Asensio first burst onto the scene in the 2016/17 season, however he truly made himself a household name in the 2017 Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona.

The Spanish star completely ran the show against the Blaugrana in the second leg, with Asensio also scoring two sensational goals, one in either leg, to help wrap up the trophy for Los Blancos.

Asensio also proved to be a key player in Real’s Champions League campaign this season, with the midfielder often being brought on to help see out games and run the clock down effectively.
