Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Marco Asensio’s situation at Real Madrid, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet El Gol Digital, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a potential swoop to sign the Spain international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that the 22-year-old is considering his future at los Blancos following Zinedine Zidane’s resignation and Julen Lopetegui’s controversial appointment as their new head coach.

According to the same story, Asensio is eager to learn where he fits in Lopetegui’s plans for Real Madrid before the promising playmaker makes a decision about his long-term future at The Bernabeu.

Manchester United have already signed Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot in a £17m deal from FC Porto in the summer transfer window to improve their defensive options under Mourinho.

The Red Devils have also agreed to a deal to sign Brazil international Fred in a £52m deal from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester United finished in second spot in the Premier League last term before a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.
