​Chelsea launch €135m bid for Real Madrid whizkid Marco Asensio

Don Balon claim that Chelsea will test the resolve of Real Madrid to keep their youngster Marco Asensio in the summer.

While Asensio is highly regarded at the Santiago Bernabeu, he is not a regular starter in the team. And any Galactico signings in the summer could push him further away from the first team picture.

The report states that Chelsea will come in with a bid of around €135 million for the talented 22-year-old.

There is a possibility the move is linked to the future of Eden Hazard, with the attacker linked to a move to Real Madrid in the summer given his unhappiness with manager Antonio Conte's tactics in certain games.
