Spurs told Asensio would cost €700m

Totteham Hotspur have contacted Real Madrid to inquire about the availability of Marco Asensio, and, according to AS, have been told that the winger is not for sale and any suitor would have to pay the buyout clause set in his contract – €700 million.

Having missed out on adding players to their ranks in the last two transfer windows, the Champions League finalists seem to be trying to make a statement by going for one of the most talented young players at one of the biggest clubs in the world, but they’ve apparently been forced to learn that things aren’t that simple – reaching the final of UEFA’s elite club competition in itself isn’t enough to pull off such deals.

Since his return to the Santiago Bernabeu dugout, Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that Asensio is a big part of his plans. Juventus have also shown interest and reportedly made a move for the 23-year-old, but with no luck.
