It was rumored here yesterday that Liverpool have made big-money move for Real Madrid youngster Marco Asensio.
The Reds shocked most of their fans as they were reported to have tabled a €180m offer to the Los Blancos so as to get the highly-rated striker this summer.
However, there is another surprising report emanating from Santiago Bernabeu via Mundo Deportivo, who are reporting that the La Liga giants are unwilling to release him for such amount.
According to the Spanish media outlet, Real Madrid are not ready to partway with the lively striker this summer despite being a fringe member of the team throughout last season.
The Galaticos hierarchy claimed that the youngster would get regular action in the upcoming season due to the change of manager by the club’s board of Directors in the early part of the month.
The youngster was awesome in his first season at Real Madrid in 2016, scoring important and beautiful goals to help the team to two trophies – La Liga and the Champions League.
Though he wasn’t given much chance to feature on the field of play, the 22-year-old Spaniard striker managed to score 11 goals in all competitions during last season.
His pace and his ability to score long-range goals, the Reds are still hoping they could convince Florentino Perez to sanction his switch to the Anfield Stadium in days time.
