We’re delighted to bring you the latest in a serious of nonsense transfer rumours published by Don Balon. This one relates to Marco Asensio, and being honest with you, we rather hope they’ve got their information correct for once.
Chelsea are in dire need of reinforcements this summer. We cannot afford the gulf between ourselves and our rivals grow. Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all got to work in the transfer market – and we don’t even know who’s going to be managing us next season.
Though managers will have their preferences when it comes to transfers, there’s some players who could succeed under virtually every manager under the sun. Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio is one of those, and Don Balon believe we’re in with a shout of signing him this summer.
The report notes Chelsea’s interest, while claiming that Asensio would reject advances from Liverpool in favour of a move to Stamford Bridge. As always with Don Balon, you have to take this with an almighty pinch of salt – but we can dream!
