Manchester City could agree deal with Real Madrid for Isco


According to The S*n, Manchester City are interested in Real Madrid midfielder Isco and could finally succeed in bringing the playmaker to the Etihad Stadium after being twice rejected in the past.

The 25-year-old has cut an unhappy figure at Real this season, making just 18 La Liga starts from a possible 29 and being substituted in 72% of the games he’s started in.

The lack of playing time could lead Isco to seek a move elsewhere and Manchester City appear desperate to take advantage. Manager Pep Guardiola could lodge a bid for the £140k-per-week star this summer, but he won’t come cheap.

City would have to spend a club-record fee to land the Spanish international. Isco is valued at around £75m says The S*n. He may be worth it, however.

Despite not nailing down a starting place under Zinedine Zidane this campaign, the midfielder has scored and created a goal every 153 minutes in La Liga, has created 41 chances and made 46 successful dribbles.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been named as suitors for the 25-year-old, but City appear to lead the race for his signature.
