Another wave of Isco-related rumours kicks in. Spanish football journalist Eduardo Inda who once was a chief editor at Marca claims that Isco has already told Real Madrid players that he dreams of leaving the club.
In his column at El Chiringuito, Indo wrote that the 26-year old is frustrated with the situation when he’s not getting any playing time under Real Madrid’s newly appointed manager Santiago Solari.
Pep Guardiola has been a long-time admirer of Isco, as his playing style is very similar to the one of David Silva, who’s about to turn 33 years old next month. That being said, it should be considered that a separate report claimed that if City wanted the Spanish international, they would have to pay a huge transfer fee to secure his services.
€700 million is Isco’s release clause. Of course, nobody would pay this kind of money, but it would still be a €100+ million transfer, considering Isco’s talent and young age.
Meanwhile, City are reportedly in talks with Real Madrid over Brahim Diaz in a move that could see the youngster leave for the Bernabeu in January. Who knows, maybe this transfer would help the two clubs set a move for Isco, in case Madrid are ready to let go of the Spaniard.
