Florentino Perez admits Real Madrid rejected Liverpool's bid for Marco Asensio
The Spain star has found himself regularly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks and it’s been suggested he could find himself surplus to requirements if Real land one of their top summer targets in Eden Hazard.
Indeed, Mundo Deportivo last week suggested Liverpool had seen a massive €150million offer for Asensio knocked back in January as the Reds sought a replacement for Barcelona-bound Philippe Coutinho.
And while Perez has refused to disclose exactly how much Liverpool bid for the player, the Real Madrid president has confirmed the club did reject an offer for Asensio’s services: "If somebody wants to sign Asensio, his price-tag is €700million".
Is Asensio even good enogh for €700m or is it just crazy?
