Manchester City are reportedly keeping tabs on Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.

The impressive Spaniard has been sensational since bursting onto the scene last season and has subsequently caught the eye of several top clubs across Europe.

Asensio is claimed to be unhappy with the game time he is being given by Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid and, as per Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, is being closely monitored by City.
