Chelsea begin Isco talks with Real Madrid

In news that definitely should be received with a pinch of salt, El Desmarque in Spain have reported that Chelsea are keen on bringing in Real Madrid’s Isco to the club and value the flamboyant playmaker at £47 million.

The report states that Lampard wants Isco to be deployed in front of N’Golo Kanté, which will allow him the freedom to express himself in attack without bothering about defensive duties.

Furthermore, the report also states that talks between the two clubs could already have started.

Isco’s career at Madrid has taken a bit of a nosedive in the past year and a half. At a time when he should be the architect of their attack, he’s found it difficult to cement a place in the starting eleven and has started six times in the LaLiga this season.

The veracity of this rumour is questionable but being the crown jewel of Lampard’s midfield might be something that excites the 27-year-old.
