A number of Liverpool fans have laughed off suggestions that Real Madrid will offer Marco Asensio as part of a summer bid for Sadio Mane.
Indeed, according to The Express, Los Blancos are so keen to land Mane in this summer’s transfer window that they are prepared to offer Asensio to the Reds.
The Spain international has helped Real Madrid win two Champions League titles but his form during the 2018-19 campaign was very disappointing.
Asensio netted just once in La Liga last term and could be pushed further down the pecking order following the arrivals of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic.
Mane, on the other hand, netted 26 goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side last season.
The Liverpool fans are just not interested in any potential deal involving Mane as they do not want to see the Senegal international leave Anfield this summer under any circumstances.
