Arsenal and Manchester United could go head-to-head to sign Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio this summer.

The Spaniard has been a key player for the European champions over the years, but he is said to be concerned over his game time.

He was a regular on the bench during the final phase of the Champions League as Vinicius Junior and Federico Valverde were preferred out wide.

With a year left on his contract, there is speculation that he could pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere rather than penning a new long-term deal.

Amidst this, Sport claim that Arsenal and United are the front-runners to sign him. Madrid could accept a package of €30m plus €10m in add-ons.

Arsenal were recently in the pursuit of Leeds United winger Raphinha, but their move was hijacked at the final hurdle by London rivals Chelsea.

United, on the other hand, seem keen on landing Ajax's Antony, but he may cost around €80m. Asensio would be a cost-effective option for both clubs.
