£133m-rated Chelsea target sets an ultimatum to his current club

February 24, 2018

Los Blancos young talent Marco Asensio is allegedly desperate to have his future determined by Real Madrid within the following 30 days while he’s being linked with Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 22-year-old starlet is an impressive player who could surely shine for numerous top clubs, but he’s not considered as a first-team footballer as anticipated this season under Zinedine Zidane’s management.

Diario Gol states that Asensio is now eager to know Real Madrid plans for him, and whether or not they’re looking forward to signing the Chelsea ace Eden Hazard at the end of the season – in which case the Spain international would likely leave the club.

According to Don Balon, the Spanish attacking midfielder has previously been viewed as a £133m-rated transfer target for Chelsea, which makes perfect sense if they are to lose Eden Hazard and need to find an exemplary replacement in attack.

Another article from Don Balon states that Arsenal are among his admirers as well, and they could go for a big-name signing in that part of the pitch after losing Alexis Sanchez to the Red Devils, while Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott also left the Gunners.
