Liverpool handed massive boost in their pursuit for £75,000 a-week Real Madrid star

June 11, 2018

Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio has reportedly threatened to leave the Santiago Bernabeu if they complete the signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar this summer.

The Los Blancos have been increasingly rumoured with a blockbuster move for former Barcelona forward Neymar, who became the most expensive player after making the £200m switch to PSG last summer.

Brazil international forward is reportedly desperate to return to Spain with three times Champions League winners, but Diario Gol claims that Asensio would consider his future should the Brazilian join the Los Blancos.

Spain international has made just 28 starts across all competitions last campaign and is concerned that the arrival of Brazilian superstar would further limit his first-team minuted in the Spanish capital.

Former Mallorca attacker reportedly tells teammates that he is leaving whenever Neymar is mentioned in the dressing room, and the likes of PSG, Juventus and Liverpool have been credited with an interest.

Liverpool could look to prioritise a move for 22-year-old attacker after their deal with Nabil Fekir collapsed.

Meanwhile, Liverpool remain keen on to secure services of another Real Madrid star Lucas Vasquez.
