And as expected, it has made Real Madrid move quickly to tie down one of the brightest prospects in Spanish football.

According to reports in Spain, Liverpool made a £42m bid for Asensio in January that was rejected, and Arsenal were alsom believe dto be preparing a move this summer.

But as SunSport has previously reported, the 21-year-old is about to put pen to paper on an improved contract with the European champions that would keep him at the club till 2023.
