According to The Express, Real Madrid are ready to offer Marco Asensio to Liverpool in exchange for Sadio Mane, and that will be disappointing for Tottenham Hotspur.

It has been reported that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of Asensio, who is rated at £85 million and can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder.

 

Madrid are willing to part company with Asensio, but the Spanish and European giants want Liverpool winger Mane as part of the deal, according to the report.

The Express has also claimed of interest in the 23-year-old attacking midfielder from Tottenham, but Madrid’s reported plan will come as a blow to the North London outfit.

Quality footballer

Asensio is a hugely talented and promising attacking player who would be a brilliant signing for Tottenham or Liverpool.

The Spain international has been on the books of Madrid since 2014, and given that he is only 23 years of age, he can only get better in the coming years.

According to WhoScored, the attacking midfielder made 19 starts and 11 substitute appearances in La Liga for Madrid this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists in the process.
