Marco Asensio of Real Madrid has proven how loyal he is in his affairs with Sandra Garal as he took to his Instagram story to share a picture showing when he handed over the Tokyo Olympics silver medal he won in football to his girlfriend.
In the picture, Sandra Garal could be seen holding the medal like a mother carrying her most precious child while Marco Asensio stood in front of her to watch her admire it.
Marco Asensio was not as spectacular as expected in the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games but he was able to make his mark in the football aspect of the games.
The most outstanding moment of the 25-year-old Spanish right-winger was when he scored a stunner in the semi-final of the tournament between Spain and Japan.
Even though he started the semi-finals from the bench, his extra-time goal was enough to fire Spain to the final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics football tournament.
However, he was not able to repeat such a spectacular performance in the final as Brazil went on to beat Spain to clinch the Gold medal while Spain made do with the Silver medal.
Marco Asensio’s performance in the tournament has continued to keep him linked with a possible move to Arsenal even though he still has two seasons left on his contract with Real Madrid.
At the time of publishing this report, Arsenal were yet to make an official bid for the 25-year-old Spanish winger and the possibility of Marco Asensio moving to the Premier League club is very slim.

Marco Asensio has been in a romantic relationship with Sandra Garal since early 2019 according to reports. They reportedly met at a nightclub where Sandra worked as a waitress. She was working at the nightclub when she was still an undergraduate.
Marco Asensio and Sandra Garal made their relationship official on June 15, 2019, when they both attended the wedding ceremony of former Real Madrid star, Sergio Ramos and his wife, Pilar Rubio.
Though Sandra Garal is two years older than his 25-year-old boyfriend, their relationship has been quite free from controversies.
The Spanish beauty is not just beautiful on the face, she is very smart. She studied at Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid in Spain where she graduated with a degree in Architecture
