Liverpool ready to beat Arsenal in race for 21-year-old magician

August 11, 2017

According to the Spanish media sources, Liverpool and Arsenal have made bids for Real Madrid attacking starlet Marco Asensio.

The Spanish sensation impressed under Zinedine Zidane last term but didn’t get regular game time.

The 21-year-old Asensio started only 11 La Liga matches as Real Madrid lifted the title ahead of Barcelona. And Spanish publication Diario Gol claim the winger is attracting a lot of attention.

It is believed that Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus have made bids for Marco Asensio.

As per the Diario Gol, the Spanish maestro wants to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu but he is willing to leave if Zinedine Zidane cannot guarantee him regular game time.

Zidane and Real president Florentino Perez are desperate to keep hold of the winger. The pair see Asensio as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid.

The same sources also claim that Marco Asensio is hoping Gareth Bale leaves the Santiago Bernabeu so he gets more minutes under the legendary French manager.

Bale, 28, has been strongly linked with a move away from La Liga, with Manchester United keen on the former Tottenham Hotspur talisman.
