There may be several deals between Chelsea and Real Madrid this summer with the latest proposition comes from the Blues with an €135m offer for Marco Asensio.
That’s according to Don Balon, with talks that the Blues are preparing this mega-money offer for the Spanish midfielder.
Despite Asensio competing for a consistent place in Zinedine Zidane’s line-ups, the 22-year-old has often found himself on the bench at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, club president Florentino Perez is vying to keep hold of the Real player despite the likelihood of the La Liga side having a squad overhaul this summer, Don Balon reports.
That overhaul may include Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, who have both been linked with moves to the Spanish capital, with the pair having two years remaining on their current Chelsea deals.
Asensio may be used as a bargaining chip by Real in a bid to lure one of our stars away from Stamford Bridge.
But for now it’s anyone’s guess as to what the upcoming transfer window holds for both teams.
