Oh how sweet it still is.
Asensio price set at 50 Million Euros.
Well one thing is for sure. Real Madrid don’t want to lose Asensio for cheap. With Milan, Liverpool, United and now Arsenal interested the club are confident an offer can be reached. Jorge Mendez seems to be shopping his client around Europe but also this annoying rumor seems to be making the rounds.

Jovic close to Fiorentina.
GOAL Italia reports that an agreement has been found between Real Madrid and Fiorentina on a one year loan. This will be a dry loan with Madrid paying half of Jovic’s salary. There is also no purchase option at the end of the loan. This is probably the best outcome for all parties and one can hope that Jovic gets adequate playing time to increase his market value on any future sale.
Fiorentina are one step away from signing Luka Jović. The agreement is now close with Real Madrid on loan until June 2023 with salary shared. #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 28, 2022
