Liverpool news LIVE updates: Mane injury latest, PSG talks after game, Asensio raid

That’s not put off Klopp off though. The Reds chief reportedly lodged a £160m offer last summer.

Real bigwigs were quick to turn down the approach.

With Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus, the La Liga heavyweights were in no mood to do business.

“This year, an offer of 180m euros [£160m] came to Liverpool’s Real Madrid for Asensio,” Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda explained.

“The club said no because Cristiano left, but Klopp is in love with the player and will go for the player next summer.”
