It was reported that Manchester United are ready to make an offer for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.
The Red Devils could make a £25m bid for the Spaniard, the outlet claims Relief.
But it could be difficult to seal a deal because Los Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to keep Asensio at the club.
But the 26-year-old midfielder’s contract expires next summer, so Real Madrid may want to cash in now in case a new contract cannot be arranged.
Asensio may be tempted to move to Old Trafford with former club-mates Raphael Varane and Casemiro.
Rumors suggest that Manchester United may not be the only club for him as Liverpool have previously shown interest.
Newcastle and Arsenal have also been linked with an unnamed Italian club keeping an eye on him as well.
Real Madrid won the League and Champions League last season, as Asensio played 42 times in all competitions and scored 12 goals.
He has been at the Spanish giants since 2014 when he joined from Real Mallorca.
In total, he played 236 times for the club, scored 49 times and contributed 24 more assists.
