Chelsea could sign €120m La Liga star next summer

October 22, 2018

Real Madrid will reportedly consider parting ways with Marco Asensio during the January transfer window if the club receives an offer in the region of €120 million, according to the latest reports.

A Spanish national daily sport newspaper Marca, as quoted on TEAMtalk, reports that the La Liga club could be tempted into a sale with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea monitoring his future.

Playing time has not always been guaranteed for Marco Asensio at Real Madrid, causing concerns for his long-term future at the club.

Battling for starts against the likes of Gareth Bale and Isco Alarcon has often meant that the Spaniard misses out for Los Blancos.

Asensio was connected with a move to the Premier League throughout the summer and has often been touted as a possible target for both Chelsea and Liverpool in previous windows.

It is yet to be seen if Blues would sanction such a move during the January transfer market, while Real Madrid will surely be hoping that they can use Spaniard as a bargaining chip in their pursuit of Belgian star Eden Hazard.
