Arsenal And Liverpool Target To Cost More Than Neymar As Real Madrid Insert N214B Buyout ClauseThe imperious displays of Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio in recent matches have not gone unnoticed by Europe's elite clubs.

According to Marca, Los Blancos higher-ups are planning to offer the Spain international a new contract until the summer of 2023, with a buy-out clause of 500 million euros (approximately N214 billion) inserted into the agreement.

It is a law in Spain that players can buy out their own contracts, for example the recent transfer of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain and Nigeria star Obafemi Martins paid €3 million (N1.3 billion) to buy out his contract with Levante before he was allowed to join Seattle Sounders in 2013.

Liverpool and Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Marco Asensio this summer, but Real Madrid are set to fend off their interest by offering the winger a new deal and raise his wages to 4.5 million euros every year.

Real Madrid chiefs consider Asensio as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, and the English Premier league teams will certainly be put off by his huge buyout clause.
