Reports claim that Real are now ready to step up their interest by making a firm bid to lure him away from Anfield this summer, and a swap deal has been mooted.
Real have spent big this summer and it is claimed they will attempt to finance a deal for Mane by offering Asensio, who is no longer in the thoughts of Zinedine Zidane, as part of the package.
