AC Milan are one of the clubs interested in signing Marco Asensio on a free transfer but a huge offer has arrived from England, it is claimed.
According to Calciomercato.com, Asensio has decided to reject the latest contract offer from Real Madrid and is now almost certain to leave them on a free transfer and start a new adventure elsewhere after nine years with Los Blancos.
There is no shortage of offers as Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Juventus and Newcastle all have him in their sights, but it seems a surprise candidate could win the race in the end.
After securing qualification for the UEFA Conference League, Unai Emery put the wheels in motion to try and bring Asensio to Aston Villa. Not only that, but the offer put on the table is such a large one that the Spain international has asked for time.
Asensio wants to reflect on his options, but it seems Villa have been so convincing that he is currently inclined to say yes, while the Italian clubs who are interested just cannot match the same terms.
