REAL MADRID are preparing to offer Jurgen Klopp the chance to sign Marco Asensio but there is only one catch - they want Sadio Mane in exchange.

Klopp is known to be a big fan of the £85million rated Spanish international who is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Real Madrid have been taking a keen interest in the Senegal international who played a key role in helping Klopp’s side lift the Champions League trophy last season.

Real are willing to allow Asensio, 23, leave the Bernabeu this summer and are ready to use him as bait to land Mane.

Meanwhile allowing Mane to leave Anfield could open the door for a move on Lille hitman Nicolas Pepe if he doesn’t join French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
