Massive News: 'Extraordinary' €50m wing sensation tells Real Madrid he'll sign for Liverpool if he doesn't play more

One of Jurgen Klopp's current transfer targets has reportedly threatened to quit Real Madrid and sign for Liverpool this summer.

Last week, a report on Spanish Radio Station Cadena Cope claimed that Liverpool recently made a €50m offer for Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio.

Now, Spanish newspaper Diario Gol claims that the Spaniard has threatened to quit Madrid and sign for 'Liverpool, Arsenal, or Juventus' if he doesn't get more playing time.

Some info about Asensio:

* 21-year old left-winger, who can also play RW and AM. Contract expires: 2022

* Espanyol: 19 goals/assists in 37 apps (One every 160 mins)

* Real Madrid: 12 goals/assists in 29 apps (One every 130 mins)

* Spain: 18 goals/assists in 26 apps for U21s/U19s. 2 apps for senior national team.

* Scored for Madrid on his La Liga debut, his Champions League debut, and his Copa Del Rey debut.

* Dec 2016: Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane told Marca: "Asensio has the best left foot since Lionel Messi".

* Apr 2017: Real legend Emilio Butragueño told Sport: "Marco Asensio is technically gifted, fast and powerful. He was extraordinary today. He has the confidence of Zidane."

Asensio is undoubtedly talented, but throwing ultimatums around is a dangerous game, especially when it involves the biggest club in the world. You have to admire Asensio's chutzpah, though. To basically hold Real Madrid to ransom takes some cojones, though I suspect he's in for a rude awakening.
