Report: Tottenham ready £88m bid for Marco Asensio and Real Madrid could be tempted to sell

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing the Real Madrid ace.

According to a report from El Confidencial, Tottenham are preparing a €100 million (£88 million) bid for Real Madrid ace Marco Asensio this summer, and the Spanish giants could be tempted to sell if they manage to sign either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe.

The information conflicts with previous reports from AS, who claimed that Madrid would not sell the Spurs target for anything less than his €700 million (£619 million).

The 23-year-old attacker is a real talent, and he would be an excellent addition for Tottenham.


Asensio can play anywhere along the front-line, as well as in an attacking midfield role, and he certainly has the X-factor to take Spurs to another level entirely.

The Spain international has struggled for regular game-time under Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu, however, and should Madrid sign either Neymar or Mbappe from PSG, they might just be tempted to sell the 23-year-old.

El Confidencial claims that Tottenham re prepared to pay somewhere around £88 million for Asensio, and in today's day and age, that would represent decent value for money for a player with so much ability and potential.

Spurs are definitely in need of more quality in the final third to help supplement the talent they already have, and the Real Madrid star would be just the ticket for the north London outfit.
