As much as we have out doubts about Arsene Wenger being interest in Riyad Mahrez or Mauro Icardi even Alexandre Lacazette, given the who circus he comes with, it can’t be ignored that a possible deal is likely going on with European champions and Arsenal.
Real Madrid has put the Premier League giants on alert after putting up Isco for sale as according to reports from Spanish news outlet AS.
The Spanish newspaper claims Real manager Zinedine Zidane is willing to let the Spaniard leave the club as there has already been a replacement for him – Marco Asensio – while the report also went on claiming that the European champions will only bring new players in once current ones leave.
Isco, 24, currently leads the line of players possible to leave Bernebeu; however, getting a suitor for the midfielder would not prove to be a problem as Arsenal are reportedly showing keen interest in the attacker.
However, Manchester City and Manchester United have both been linked with a move for the Spaniard in the past. I believe a move to the Premier League is likely considering for him though, the price tag Los Blancos will place on him will determine if he will make the move to any Premier League club.
Due to France international and Juventus midfielder expected arrival at the Old Trafford for £100m and the Sky Blues recent signing of Leroy Sane for a fee believe to be in the range of £37m, Isco’s value should fall some way between the two figures.
Juventus are also believe to be showing interest in the Spaniard, but last month Real manager claimed Isco would not be going anywhere when speculation about a move to the Serie A champions was put to him.
He was quoted then by Goal saying, “Isco is a Real Madrid player and he is not leaving,”
“We have just finished the season and haven’t had time to talk about the market or any players who may be of interest to Juventus.”
Along with Isco, the future of Colombian international James Rodriguez is also in doubts as there was an earlier report that claims an unnamed Premier League have submitted a bid for him.
