REAL MADRID Madrid reject €50m Liverpool bid for Marco Asensio
Real Madrid have reportedly rejected Liverpool's bid for Marco Asensio.
In case you didn't know.
The 21-year-old offensive midfielder was recruited by Real Madrid in December 2015 as a prospect for the future after proving to be a revelation in the Spanish second division while playing for Mallorca. He was immediately loaned back to his club for the rest of the season and then impressed in his loan spell at RCD Espanyol in the 2015/16 season. Asensio has made huge progress over the course of this season and there's just no way he is leaving Real Madrid any time soon.
However, both Spanish media says that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp should forget about his signing as Real Madrid won't negotiate his departure at any price. The Spaniard has not been integral to Zinedine Zidane's side as the season has progressed, leading to rival clubs around Europe earmarking him as a transfer target.
Asensio is also said to be happy at Madrid where he has helped the team to first in La Liga and to the Champions League semi-final. However, Real Madrid have no intention of selling the youngster, while the player himself is not considering leaving the Bernabeu.
