Real Madrid coach Lopetegui willing to see Chelsea, Liverpool target Asensio sold

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui is prepared to see Marco Asensio sold in January.

Marca says Lopetegui is prepared to let him go - providing a club meets their asking price.

Asensio, who can play as a winger or an attacking midfielder, was expected to step up this season in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Juventus.

However, he's struggled for form, scoring just once in 11 outings so far this campaign.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United are all said to have an interest in the 22-year-old Spaniard

Real would expect Asensio to command a fee in the region of £100m.
