MADRID (AP) - Espanyol and Real Madrid have reached an agreement for the season-long loan of attacking midfielder Marco Asensio to the Catalan club.

The agreement will be signed Friday after the player undergoes a medical examination, Espanyol said Thursday.

Its statement added that Asensio “is a talented player with a promising future” who will strengthen coach Sergio Gonzalez’s attacking lineup.

The 21-year-old Asensio’s official presentation is scheduled to take place Friday in the club’s stadium.

Before joining Madrid, Asensio played at Mallorca, where he scored four goals in 37 appearances.
