Chelsea have been alerted to reports which have claimed Real Madrid are ready to cash in and sell midfielder Marcos Asensio this January window.
The highly-rated Spanish star was heavily linked with a move to us during the summer transfer window as Maurizio Sarri was keen to add another midfielder to the squad, but Madrid did not want to do any sort of deal for the star and we eventually signed Mateo Kovacic on a season long-loan.
Asensio has been in the transfer headlines for the last six months or so now with reports he is sick of being used as a substitute at the Spaniards, and after only being limited to 28 appearances for Madrid last season, his start to the new La Liga season has not got any better.
Now reports in the Marca website have now claimed Madrid are ready to sell Asensio in the January transfer window, with reports they are looking to revamp and shape the side after a disappointing season.
Madrid are reportedly looking to add the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Harry Kane to their squad over the coming months and know they must sell a few players to balance the books, especially since signing those four players alone would cost around £700 million.
And with all the speculation surrounding the futures of Hazard, Willian and Cesc Fabregas, Sarri is looking at possible replacements as he continues to build a squad that is capable of dominating the whole of Europe, not just the English game.
Would Asensio be a good signing for the club? Here is what we think.
The lad is a very talented player and could be a serious player in the coming seasons if he manages to get the game time to develop, so he would be an awesome buy if we could agree a deal and sign him up for the next four or five years.
However, is he worth the £100 million Madrid value him at?
