  • Marco Asensio is under contract with Real Madrid until 2023

Now, according to a report in Marca, Chelsea have emerged at the head of the queue for his signatures.

The German was linked with a move to Manchester United four years ago but opted to move to Real Madrid instead.

The Blues are closer to Roma in their evaluation of Alisson.

The report suggests Klopp has made two approaches to sign the 22-year-old, who has scored 21 goals for Real over the past two seasons.

Ensuring he is not left short-handed in midfield appears to be a key priority for Mourinho this summer following the retirement of club captain Michael Carrick, with United having parted with £52million to secure the arrival of Brazilian worldwide Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk earlier in June.

"There's no such thing in the world as an unsellable player".

'The ideal answer would be to say that he's unsellable, but I can't say that because such a player doesn't exist'. Chelsea will demand $91.7 million for the former Real Madrid man.

Liverpool are reportedly prepared to pay up to €180m to secure Asensio's services, and the Spanish side may be required to do business with Liverpool if they want to secure at least one of their reported transfer targets.

Between then and the UEFA Champions League final in May, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and AC Milan are said to have approached Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes to inform him they could meet that smaller clause, as well as offer the forward a net salary of €40 million.

Spanish media outlet Cadena Cope, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Manchester United face stiff competition from Serie A to sign the versatile midfielder. Alisson's arrival would clearly spell the end of Thibaut Courtois' time at Chelsea.
