You've heard plenty about some of the best young players in the world like Ousmane Dembele, Kylian Mbappe and others, but even they might not have the type of impact in the end as one rising star.
Born in Palma, Asensio joined Real Madrid as a youth player from island club Mallorca, who some basketball fans may know of since former NBA star Steve Nash is a part-owner.
Smooth on the ball and with a brilliant strike and world-class creativity, his confidence and performances continues to increase in quality and he'll be a focal point of Real's attack as La Liga kicks off this weekend.
His main objective, however, is to receive the ball near the final third, find a player through or just do what he did on Wednesday against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.
With Cristiano Ronaldo suspended for the first four matches of La Liga, Asenio will be looked at as the engine in the final third and will play quite a bit.
