Chelsea are reportedly leading Manchester United in the race to sign Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio.

The Blues have been continually linked with Asensio over the past months, but we’re still waiting for a reputable source to confirm our interest.

Until that happens, we are reluctant to get ahead of ourselves. Asensio would be a superb signing, no doubt, but we’d advise getting too excited about it at this stage.

If you’re an optimist, though, you’ll love this. According to El Gol Digital, Chelsea have an advantage over Premier League rivals Man United in the race to sign the Spaniard.

That’s for purely geographical reasons, Asensio would rather live in London than Manchester (which is understandable).

Bizarrely, it’s also claimed that Real Madrid have rejected £131M bids for for the 22-year-old. Surely we wouldn’t offer more than that for a player who is yet to prove they can handle the responsibility of starting at a club of our stature?
