Marco Asensio has shown his quality since progressing at Real Madrid.

There has been an update in Chelsea’s pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio.

Asensio is widely considered one of the most promising young players in the world. The Spaniard has showcased his mouthwatering ability during every opportunity he has been given to impress at Real Madrid.

However, he has so far been unable to fully force his way into Zinedine Zidane’s thinking. The Frenchman has a star-studded squad at his disposal, he has been forced to make difficult selection decisions, and as a result Asensio has been left out in the cold.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio.

As per Diario Gol, Asensio could seek the Santiago Bernabeu exit door in search of regular first-team football. It is believed that a move to Chelsea is being considered as an escape route.

In fact, Diario Gol go as far as claiming that Sergio Ramos believes Asensio is already house-hunting in London ahead of his move to Stamford Bridge. We’ll keep an eye on this situation as the clock ticks down towards the summer transfer window.
