Liverpool Football Club have had a £42million transfer bid for Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio rejected, claim reports in Spain.
Credible sources in Spain have backed up the initial reports which reported that Jürgen Klopp had tabled a €50million offer in the hope of recruiting Asensio in the summer.
Real Madrid supremo Florentino Perez is refusing to consider offers for the 21-year-old who is considered one of Europe’s most promising talents.
Asensio, who scored in Real Madrid’s extra-time win over Bayern Munich earlier this week, is attracting attention from some of Europe’s biggest clubs but he looks unlikely to leave the Bernabéu anytime soon.
It would have been highly unlikely that Liverpool could have pulled off such a move so supporters may question this one. It definitely sounds odd.
