Man Utd angry at Real Madrid and want revenge by signing Marco Asensio – surprise claims   Manchester United are targeting two more transfers before the window closes on August 31 with Jose Mourinho determined to win the Premier League during his second season in charge. Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku have both already signed on the dotted line from Benfica and Everton respectively.  However, Jose Mourinho is finding transfers for a midfielder and winger harder to complete. Mourinho has tried to get deals for the likes of Eric Dier, Nemanja Matic and Ivan Perisic over the line but Tottenham, Chelsea and Inter Milan are playing hardball. Real Madrid, meanwhile, are looking for a new centre-forward to fill the void left by Alvaro Moratas departure to Chelsea. Sensational reports in Spain last week claimed that Marcus Rashford was on a four-man list of players to target.  And Diario Gol claim United want revenge on their European rivals by accelerating plans to bring Asensio to Old Trafford. It is said manager Jose Mourinho initially wanted the player further down the line – but news of Reals interest in Rashford has supposedly forced him to go for Asensio quicker than originally planned.  However, Real are hellbent on keeping the 21-year-old and view him as a future face of the club.  It is said the player is not open to leaving the Bernabeu at this point in time. But he is flattered by their interest and is refusing to rule out an exit one day in the future.  Speaking back in April, Asensio insisted his sole focus was remaining at Real for as long as possible.   “In the end I do not think about other teams or if I could play in other teams, I always think about Madrid,” the Spaniard said. “I found it difficult at first, but you have to work in the training sessions and be prepared to take advantage of the opportunity when it comes. “I already said that I wanted to stay and that I was going to fight for minutes.”.
