Journalist claims Chelsea FC star is Real Madrid’s second-choice target

01 July, 2018, 20:31 | Author: Candice Daniels
  • Marco Asensio is under contract with Real Madrid until 2023

However, negotiations between the two clubs have been hard and Real Madrid are unwilling to match Roma's €70m asking price for the Brazilian goalkeeper.

Chelsea are preparing to make a €70m offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson in the coming days.

This is why Courtois' contractual situation at Stamford Bridge is of huge intrigue in the Spanish capital. "Real Madrid have spoken to Chelsea, They know what he will cost". The Italian giants have been banned from European competitions for two seasons for failing to comply with the FFP regulations.

Telemadrid's report discusses a €50m bid for Asensio in 2017, which was obviously rejected by Real Madrid.

Chelsea will therefore hope to get a deal wrapped up as soon as possible, although that can be tough during a summer tournament.

LeBron James to opt out, will become a free agent
But the Cavaliers assembled a weak supporting cast around James last season and attempted to revamp the team the trade deadline. Coming off one of the best seasons of his career, James is one of the most sought-after free agents in the league's history.

They cannot afford to let the 26-year-old run down that agreement to free agency, with the current transfer window set to present them with a last chance to demand a sizeable fee if no fresh terms can be agreed.

He has been a long-time target of Real Madrid, having previously applied his trade with Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid.

His experience in LaLiga is clear for all to see, he wouldn't take any time to adapt to life in Spain and he's proved himself as a truly world class goalkeeper over the past five seasons. Talks of an extension are going nowhere so the officials have resigned themselves to the prospect of Courtois leaving for a cut-price deal.

Top level goalkeepers are truly hard to find and Los Blancos are likely to have missed the boat to sign one such player with David de Gea likely to sign a contract extension at Old Trafford. When the World Cup is over, we'll talk about that sort of thing.
