Spanish press confirmed: Chelsea ready to pay Real Madrid £86m for star within 24 hours

CHELSEA have told Real Madrid they’re willing to pay £86m in the next 24 hours to sign Marcos Asensio, according to sensational claims.

The Spaniard has been a bit-part player this season and only played the second-half of Real’s thrilling clash with Juventus on Wednesday.

He’s highly rated in La Liga – but his time at the Bernabeu could be coming to an end.

Spanish media outlet Diario Gol – who are famed for their extravagant transfer rumours – reckon a move to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards.

It’s suggested Roman Abramovich wants the playmaker and Asensio is keen on west London.

He would also reportedly be enthusiastic about a reunion with Blues forward Alvaro Morata.

Diario Gol add that Gareth Bale is also being earmarked by Chelsea bigwigs.

Despite speculation surrounding Asensio, the 22-year-old has previously rubbished suggestions he could move to the Premier League.

“I always try with everything I have left,” Asensio told Nike.

“To reach the biggest club in the world where there are millions of fans and a lot of pressure was a brutal change.

“My debut was in a final. I was not nervous, I scored a goal and I won my first title.

“In all my debuts I’ve always been able to score goals and I have come to Madrid to stay and score many goals.”
