Aston Villa’s opening bid for Marco Asensio, who is available on a free transfer.
Unai Emery continues to push for the multi-time UCL winner from Real Madrid as the Premier League side waits for an answer.
The multi-time UCL winner will leave Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of June and leave for a new challenge.
Asensio has had an accomplished career at Real Madrid, winning countless trophies.
With his ideas confirmed, many clubs are chasing him, including Aston Villa, who are keen.
Unai Emery continues to push for Asensio as he seeks a new winger to his progressive squad.
Asensio is a multi-time UCL winner with Real Madrid and may harbour ambitions to keep playing in the top-tier competition.
However, the lure of Villa would mean the chance to shine in the Premier League, which is an attraction in itself.
As per Fabrizio Romano, Aston Villa have already submitted their opening bid to sign Asensio last week.
They continue to wait for an answer and may start pushing for it soon.
However, the only aspect that could change the multi-time UCL winner’s mind is the idea of the Premier League and its competitive nature.
The Spaniard continued to harbour ambitions to keep playing for his national side, which may have had a bearing on his decision.
Emery will certainly hope he joins Villa and may feel their offer is a good one to continue his career away from Madrid.
