Chelsea will likely invest massively in their squad in the summer, and they’re being linked with a club-record move for out-of-favour Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio.
As reported by the Don Balon, the West Londoners are planning to make an offer of incredible €135m for the Spaniard, which would become a British transfer record exceeding the £89m Manchester United spent on re-signing Paul Pogba almost two years ago.
The 22-year-old creative player broke into the Madrid first-team last campaign after a useful loan spell at Espanyol and has scored 20 goals in 77 career appearances for Los Blancos.
But, Asensio has been in and out of the starting line-up under Zinedine Zidane, starting just 13 La Liga matches this campaign and the young player is unhappy with his playing time at the time and is considering his future.
Real Madrid are planning a massive squad overhaul in the summer and could cash-in on the unfortunate attacker to fund moves for other players.
Liverpool and Arsenal have both been linked with a move for the ex Mallorca star.
