Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are reportedly open to the idea of selling young forward Marco Asensio to Champions League holders Liverpool.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Express which claimed that Liverpool have the opportunity to sign Marco Asensio who’s rated at £85m.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be a big admirer of Marco Asensio and he’s keen to add the 23-year-old to his forward line.

It was revealed that Real Madrid want a swap deal for Marco Asensio.

Real Madrid will sell Marco Asensio to Liverpool in exchange for Sadio Mane, but it remains to be seen if Liverpool will be open to the condition from the Spaniards.

Senegalese international star Mane was in very good form for Liverpool whom he helped to win the Champions League at the end of last season.

Liverpool won the Champions League title via a 2-0 win over fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

Sadio Mane scored four goals enroute the Reds’ Champions League triumph.

The former Southampton attacker also finished the season with the Golden Boot in the Premier League after he netted 22 goals.

Sadio Mane won the Golden Boot race alongside Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
