Nadal tried to get Real Madrid star to Barcelona, but the player wanted only Real!

Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio enjoyed a hugely impressive season at the club, winning the La Liga and Champions League titles.

He followed that up with a superb display at the Under-21 European Championship as Spain finished runners-up to Germany.

He was one of the best players in the tournament with his hat-trick against Italy standing out.

Former Barcelona player Miguel Angel Nadal, uncle of tennis star Rafa Nadal, revealed that he tried to get the Spanish talent to sign for the Catalans when he was ready to leave Mallorca.
