Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio is reportedly warning the club that he could leave amid transfer speculation linking him with Manchester United.
Don Balon recently claimed United were prepared to make a mammoth offer for the talented Spain international, who burst onto the scene with a series of fine displays last season.
Reports from Diario Gol will now surely fuel speculation over Asensio’s future, with the Spanish source claiming the 21-year-old is losing patience with his situation at the Bernabeu.
This could be good news for United if they decide to pursue their interest, with attacking players clearly seeming to be high on the agenda at Old Trafford at the moment.
The Sun have also recently linked the Red Devils with a move for Asensio’s Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale, while Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann is also said to be a top target.
United got back to winning ways in some style at the weekend as they beat Newcastle 4-1, but in general they’ve looked a little lacking in spark up front in recent games.
Asensio has certainly shown he has the potential to ease those concerns if he were to move to United in the near future.
