Manchester United are linked with a number of attackers and now, the name of Marco Asensio is once again in the focus.
Yesterday, The Telegraph reported that Real Madrid have offered the Spanish international to the Red Devils for a fee of £25.3m (30 million euros) but the Pl side are focusing on luring Antony.
However, reports today suggest that Man Utd are prepared to agree the asking fee of £25.3m to hire the services of the La Roja star this summer.
Mundo Deportivo have cited reports in Spain and claimed that the Old Trafford club are prepared to pay 30 million euros to sign Asensio.
The 26-year-old is looking to leave the Los Blancos and even the Gunners are in the race to secure his signature. Speaking on his future, manager, Carlo Ancelotti, stated:
“I do not know what will happen. He is looking at something to see if he can get out. If he does not leave, from September 1 he will be a 100% Real Madrid player”
Asensio has won three Champions League titles with Real Marid but the problem is that he has never been able to establish himself in the starting XI.
Last season, he only started two games in the UCL and nineteen in the La Liga. This term, he warmed the bench in the UEFA Super Cup and in the opening league contest.
On the other hand, last weekend, the Spaniard only featured for seven minutes as a substitute against Celta Vigo.
Asensio needs to play week in and week out if he wants to improve his chances of playing for the national side at the World Cup. In your view, should Man Utd rescue him from the Bernabeu by splashing £25.3m?
