Manchester United are a team looking around the globe searching for big talents to rebuild a team to go back to the top of the footballing charts under Jose Mourinho, and young aged players are a priority.
One name in that category associated with the Red Devils is that of Marco Asensio, a midfield sensation belonging to Real Madrid.
United manager Jose Mourinho has been told on his approach to his former club Madrid that he will have to pay up in order to achieve any kind of deal for the young player that they seem to target.

The La Liga giants have told Mourinho to dig deep into the pockets of the club’s financial sources, after having pinned a staggering £40m price tag on his head – a huge leap from the price he was purchased at in 2014, a meagre £3m.
The player, aged just 21, is in no hurry to be sold by Real Madrid to the Premier League, and they might want the young prodigy to grow and then get a right price for the lad, or maybe settle him into a squad for the future at the Bernabeu.
With a line up of players like Ronaldo, Bale, Modric and James Rodriguez, it might be tough for Asensio to find a way into the side, hence allowing interest for a move to over 20 possible clubs in the hunt for his signature.
United lead the Premier League contingent, closely followed by Chelsea and Arsenal, for the player famous for a powerful left foot and blistering pace as his topmost qualities, as per reports from the Daily Star.
