Manchester United want Real Madrid to include Marco Asensio in the deal that will see David de Gea move to Santiago Bernabeu, according to report.

De Gea has been on Real Madrid’s shopping list since the summer of 2015 but a delay in the documentation by a fax machine collapse the deal.

Los Blancos have recently been linked with a move for Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arribalaga and also Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.

Don Balon reported that Real Madrid is willing to sign De Gea next summer and Manchester United is willing to welcome the offer only if Real Madrid includes Marco Asensio in the deal.

Asensio has struggled for playing time under Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and could entertain the move to join Juan Mata at the Old Trafford.

The Spanish under 21 has his place threaten by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and if the pair remains he will continue to come in from the bench except if the case of injury or suspension to Ronaldo or Bale then he can be given the nod to start.

Jose Mourinho has been a fan of the young Spaniard since he broke into the limelight, according to Don Balon.

Real Madrid currently sit 16 points behind Barcelona in the La Liga table and a big summer is needed if they are to pip the Catalan giants to silverware next term.
