Chelsea have taken steps to try and land a €180m Liverpool target, while Man Utd have made a £198m winger their number one priority for 2019, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
CHELSEA TABLE OFFER FOR LIVERPOOL TARGET
Chelsea have reportedly placed an offer on the table in an attempt to land Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.
This is according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, who claim that that Roman Abramovich has told the Spain international that he will “make him his new star” at Stamford Bridge.
Asensio also previously admitted he was due for talks with new Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui after the conclusion of Spain’s World Cup.
The report goes on to suggest that Asensio is in no hurry to ditch Real Madrid for west London, however there are two things that could change that.
Number one is that the 22-year-old believes his recent performances deserve recognition in the form of a salary increase. In addition, Asensio also wants assurances over his playing time.
