Man with ‘Ronaldo & Putin’ written on his body invades UEFA Super Cup pitch

Barcelona are considering a move for Marco Asensio if they can not sign Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele this summer - but the Real Madrid starlet has a £72million release clause.

European football's fiercest rivals clash in the first leg of their cup extravaganza this weekend after Real won La Liga and Barca lifted the Copa del Rey.

Isco is happy with the winning mentality in the Real Madrid dressing room and is hopeful of soon extending his contract, which now has less than 12 months to run.

Liverpool could also be on the look out for another attacker amid speculation that Barcelona are going hard for Philippe Coutinho so Jurgen Klopp could be eyeing Asensio as a potential replacement. However, some uncertainty has remained as Los Blancos are yet to announce the new deal despite his current one set to expire in less than a year.

Barcelona have shown serious interest to lure the Spaniard away from the Bernabeu this summer after losing Brazilian star Neymar to Paris Saint Germain in a world record deal.

Isco has signed a new contract at Real Madrid which contains a €700m release clause, according to reports in Spain.

Isco tried to play down concerns of the Real Madrid fans earlier this week after he was named man of the match in the 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the Uefa Super Cup on 8 August, insisting that he will sign a new deal sooner rather than later.

Barcelona are ready to pull off a big coup, by triggering Marco Asensio's release clause.
