Manchester United could be in luck as reports claim Real Madrid are prepared to sell rumoured Red Devils target Marco Asensio in order to seal the transfer of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard.
According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, the Belgium international is one of Zinedine Zidane’s main targets as the Real’s embark on a rebuilding project for next summer, with Paulo Dybala, Harry Kane, Aymeric Laporte and either one of David De Gea or Thibaut Courtois.
Despite being one of the most brilliant youngsters in Europe at the moment, the report claims Asensio could be a player to make way if it helps the Los Blancos bring in Hazard.
The Spanish publication in order news, have previously claimed the Old Trafford made a £177million bid for Asensio, who shone on his breakthrough into Zidane’s first-team last season.
The 21-year-old has a brilliant left foot and already has a brilliant collection of wonder-goals to his name in his relatively shorttime in Madrid’s colours.
We could certainly do with that kind of talent in our ranks, and may want to take note that Asensio could soon become available for a transfer.
In a double boost for Jose Mourinho, it could also mean that the La Liga holders ending up raiding Chelsea for one of their most influential players in Hazard.
The Belgium international has lit up the Premier League since he joined Chelsea from Lille back in 2012, and certainly fits the bill as a ‘Galactico’ buy for Real Madrid.
