I think an ideal scenario would be to sign someone ready-made and able to tear the league up but with the price of the players being touted, I just don't think we'd consider it unless they were less than 27 and available at a reasonable price circa £50-65m.
If you consider our outgoings and the money we're saving on wages from players we kept all season (like Sturridge, Moreno, even Clyne) we have the opportunity to capitalise if we want to.
Asensio is a talent who is lost amongst a sea of it. Even if we can sit discussing why Madrid have fallen away so drastically, they need to rebuild to suit what Zizou wants and not because they're not more than capable players. Three times European Champions remember. Before he left he was progressing phenomenally and becoming more integrated and involved in the first XI. He's young, and youth talent is largely inconsistent. It's not like Trent matches Robertson for consistency yet! Honestly, I don't get why a talent like Asensio is overlooked for the likes of Vinicius Jr, Diaz and Vazquez and if we could loan to buy that'd suit us to the ground.
