Raiola tried to add Marco Asensio to his stable

Super agent Mino Raiola admits he’s tried to add Real Madrid whizkid Marco Asensio to his stable.

Raiola believes the 21-year-old midfielder can be one of the world’s next great players.

“Asensio is a phenomenon. Real Madrid has a craque for several years, his signature is a success,” he told El Mundo Deportivo.

“I’ve known him since he played as a youngster at Real Mallorca.

“I am very disappointed not to have signed because I was really close to him when he was in Majorca.”
