Liverpool will have to pay as much as €700 million to Real Madrid if they want to sign Marco Asensio this summer.
It has been reported that the Reds are among the clubs who are looking at Spain international, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger.
Tottenham Hotspur are also understood to be interested in securing the signature of the 23-year-old in the transfer window.
AS, though, has reported that Madrid General Director Jose Angel Sanchez has made it clear that any side who want to sign the Spaniard must pay his release clause of €700m (£618.06m).
Neymar is the world’s most expensive footballer and cost £200 million when he joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona back in the summer of 2017, as reported by BBC Sport.
A transfer fee of €700m (£618.06m) will make Marco Asensio the most expensive footballer on the planet, and it is hard to see the Premier League giants – or any other club for that matter – pay that much money to sign the Spaniard.
Liverpool were linked with the Real Madrid star several times in last seasons, but Los Blancos have always been reluctant to let the attacker leave.
The Real Madrid board do not want to lose their star player, but it remains to be seen if Zinedine Zidane will hand the Spaniard playing time he wants.
If the two cannot get along, then Real Madrid will probably sell the versatile attacker, and Jurgen Klopp will be closely monitoring the winger.
