Real Madrid Midfielder Wanted by Manchester United
Lurking in the Spanish press is an interesting piece of transfer tittle-tattle.
The news source, Don Balon, is reporting that Manchester United are set to become the latest big-name club, following in the footsteps of Paris Saint-Germain, to spend a staggering amount on one single player.
Having signed Paul Pogba, for £89 million, our source is reporting that the Premier League club managed by a former manager of ours, Jose Mourinho, have their radar set on real Madrid`s 21-year-old midfielder Marco Asensio.
Asensio was on Manchester United`s radar before but the Premier League club were put off by the huge fee, this time around though, it would see they have no such qualms.
This season, Asensio has been in good form with 4 goals scored from midfield in just 8 appearances.
The big question remains though, is whether Real Madrid would be prepared to do business.
I`d hope not as Asensio is a star in the making.
