Bayern Munchen To Pay €120m For Marco Asensio


Marco Asensio hasn't been enjoying the same form he was used to during Zinedine Zidane's tenure at Real Madrid, as the winger has fallen down in Santiago Solari's pecking order.

The Spaniard has one of the strongest and more accurate legs in the world and doesn't need much space to fire from deep, as he's shown during his first couple of years at Santiago Bernabeu.

Nonetheless, the 23-year-old's confidence seems long gone and he's bound to make a move out of the team in the summer, as per several local outlets.

As a matter of fact, German giants Bayern Munchen are high on signing the winger and would be willing to pay as much as €120million for his services, as per Don Balon.

Bayern has lost some ground in the Bundesliga title race against Borussia Dortmund, while they'll try to take down Liverpool in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League's knockout stage.

Should both teams complete this move, Asensio would hope to have more playing time than another former Real Madrid outcast, James Rodriguez, whose form has taken a major dip since leaving Spain.

Nonetheless, Don Balon also highlights Asensio doesn't want to leave Madrid and would be willing to stay should the team find a new boss. So far, he's scored 5 goals and 5 assists in 31 caps for Madrid.
