Report: Barca Eyeing Real's Asensio

Barcelona are weighing up a shock raid on Real Madrid to replace Neymar, according to reports.
Spanish newspaper Diario Gol says Barça are considering meeting the buyout clause of Real midfielder Marco Asensio.

The youngster's current deal carries an N33billion (£72million ) escape option, which is well within range of Barca.

Asensio is seeking guarantees from Real coach Zinedine Zidane over his playing his chances this season - though quitting Real for Barca would shock fans.

The midfielder is in line for a new contract extension at Real, where they're eager to raise his buyout clause to N15billion (£316m), so Barca recognise this month is their best chance to sign the youngster.
