WHAT HAPPENED? Asensio, 27, already agreed to a long-term contract with PSG that is worth €10 million (£8.5m/$11m) per year, The Athletic reports. The Spain international has not yet signed the deal but will complete the formalities after the season ends.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The winger decided in May that he would reject Madrid's offer to extend his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, having been in negotiations since December and will leave after eight years with the club - initially joining from Mallorca in 2015 before being loaned to Espanyol shortly afterwards.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Asensio had also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Aston Villa said to be after him, while clubs in Italy had also shown interest. Instead, he will team up with Kylian Mbappe in the French capital.
