Man Utd could move to sign £33.6million decorated playmaker – Mundo Deportivo

Marco Asensio

Manchester United need to improve their attack this summer and once again, the name of Marco Asensio is in the focus.

Ten Hag mainly wants to sign Antony from Ajax but the Brazilian international is going to cost a lot and the Red Devils should look at other options.

News – Man United ready to bid £42.2million for signing – Report

According to a short report covered by Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below) today, Man United could move to sign Asensio, whose contract with Real Madrid will expire in less than a year.

The Catalan source have mentioned that the likes of AC Milan, Liverpool and Newcastle United have been linked with the Los Blancos playmaker as well.

It is stated that the 20-time English champions are looking to reinforce their squad and are focusing on the Spaniard, who can leave the Champions League winners in the summer transfer window.

Asensio is a decorated star, who has won all the major prizes with Real Madrid, including 3 CLs, but the dilemma is that he has never been able to become a regular starter.

The La Roja attacker can feature in multiple attacking roles but mainly, he is a right-winger. Last season, Ancelotti preferred the likes of Valverde and Rodrygo in that position.

The 29-capped international was only able to start 2 games in the European Cup last term and needs to leave the Bernabeu to start week in and week out. Regular football will help him earn a place in the Spain squad for the World Cup.

With Greenwood still unavailable, Man Utd should improve their right-wing position and last month, Mundo Deportivo reported that it would take a fee of £33.6million (40 million euros) to sign Marco Asensio.

In your opinion, should the Red Devils secure his signing to reinforce the offense?
