Arsenal and Manchester United set to make ‘incredible offers’ to prise Marco Asensio away from Real Madrid

ARSENAL and Manchester United are set to make ‘incredible offers’ to prise Marco Asensio away from Real Madrid, according to reports.

The Spanish wonderkid, 21, enjoyed a stunning breakout season in 2016-17, with Serie A giants Juventus also readying a bid for the youngster.

Asensio turned out 23 times in La Liga under Zinedine Zidane following his £2.5million move from Espanyol in the summer of 2016.

The Spaniard scored three goals in the league, to go with seven strikes in just 15 cup games for the Galacticos.

His form – and obvious potential – have got three of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Arsenal and United licking their lips at the prospect of bringing him on board, according to Spanish outlet Don Balon.

However, Madrid are not keen to see the three-cap Spain international leave.

Therefore they will hope to command a massive transfer fee, making a healthy profit on the minuscule fee they paid for him just a year ago.

Asensio broke into the first-team in his debut campaign at the Bernabeu, as Real pulled off an incredible La Liga-Champions League double.

The youngster even got on the scoresheet himself, as he netted the fourth in the 4-1 drubbing of Juventus in the European final at Cardiff.

In fact, in just one season at Real, Asensio got his hands on FOUR trophies, with the Super Cup and Club World Cup the other two won.

The youngster was also a part of Spain’s European Under-19 Championship-winning side of 2015.
