Manchester United are interested in Real Madrid star, Marco Asensio, and reports indicate that the Spaniard can be lured for a fee of £30million.
Last week, Mundo Deportivo revealed that the Red Devils have made an offer to sign the versatile attacker, whose contract at the Bernabeu will expire in 12 months.
Transfer: Man Utd have outbid club to sign ‘fantastic’ £50million play breaker – Report
Yesterday, Corriere dello Sport covered a story (press image provided below) and stated the Los Blancos have been trying to agree fresh terms with the 26-year-old star but in vain.
In such a scenario, the European champions have decided to sell the La Roja attacker as they cannot afford to lose an asset like him on a free transfer next year.
The Italian news source have mentioned that Madrid cannot ask for a fee of more than 35 million euros and Man United can easily pay the £30million required to get the signing done.
As far as the competition is concerned, CdS claim that Arsenal have also entered the race to lure the La Liga attacker. However, Juventus and Milan have the edge because they can offer Champions League football that can also help Asensio earn a place in Spain’s World Cup squad.
The 29-capped international only started 24 games in all competitions for the La Liga champions and directly contributed in 14 goals (12 goals and 2 assists).
Under Zidane, he used to warm the bench because the Frenchman preferred Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale. On the other hand, last season, Ancelotti mainly used Vinicius, Benzema and Valverde/Rodrygo in the attack.
Asensio needs to leave the Bernabeu to play week in and week out. In your view, should Man Utd pay £30million to secure his signing?
Truth is, it’s either him or Antony
I’d love to see the both of them, using them interchangeably but they both need good game time to bring out their best, u can’t have world class players sitting on the bench. I’d say we get one of them and invest the money into our CF attack and midfield
