Chelsea head queue as Asensio minders warn Real Madrid of 5 major offers

Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio has warned president Florentino Perez he has offers to leave this summer.

Asensio has been outstanding over the past two games, turning their Champions League clash with PSG from the bench and scoring twice in victory at Real Betis.

Diario Gol says Asensio believes his form is proof he deserves a regular start and his minders have warned Perez offers are now arriving.

Juventus, Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea have all made contact with Asensio's camp - with some making attempts in January.

Chelsea, particularly, are intensifying their interest and are using the presence of Asensio's good friend, Alvaro Morata, to convince him about a move to London. Indeed, there's been reports of Asensio's minders house-hunting in London this month.

For his part, Perez has urged Asensio to be patient. The president has no intention of selling the young winger, despite the player's frustrations.
