Spain and Real Madrid star Marco Asensio has edged closer to completing a desired transfer to Premier league giants Manchester United, after he initiated negotiations with the side as regards a move.
As per a report by Don Balon, the midfielder has initiated talks with the Red Devils, with the Spaniard keen on sealing a transfer to Old Trafford.
The player has had an average campaign for La Liga giants Real Madrid this season, however this should not take away the obvious fact that Asensio is one of the World’s most promising youngsters.
Asensio, 23, has netted 27 goals and created 16 assists in 129 matches for Real Madrid since his arrival in 2016 summer, with the Spanish star becoming a vital figure for the Spanish club in that same time also.
His blistering speed and brilliant use of his left foot would make the Spain international a great acquisition for any top side in Europe.
The Red Devils could do with a player like him in their team, as the player’s presence would hand the side an additional option to pick from in both the flank and centre of the park.
Recently, Spanish media outlet Don Balon have cited that the player’s price tag presently sits at about £129million, a transfer fee that’s fair considering the potential and ability of Asensio.
