Real Madrid forward Isco who is reportedly being courted by West Ham has fired back at claims he helped Chelsea in the Champions League.
Real Madrid reportedly have a mole within their ranks. The issue has come to a head in recent weeks after several of Carlo Ancelotti’s team selections were leaked to a Spanish radio station.
Los Blancos entered Tuesday night’s quarter-final second leg clash with Chelsea holding a handy two-goal advantage.
The Blues roared back and took an aggregate lead after plundering three unanswered goals. However, the class of Luka Modric and Karim Benzema would ultimately tell as Real advanced to the semi-finals with a 5-4 aggregate victory after extra time.
With the stakes so high ahead of the contest, the Mirror report Ancelotti delayed the announcing of his starting eleven until just two hours before kick-off.
That was to ensure word did not get out and give Chelsea an advantage they clearly didn’t need.
It’s suggested the Real team was leaked in the first leg and sections of Madrid’s fanbase have begun to point the finger at Isco.
Their suspicions stem from the fact Isco was absent from Ancelotti’s last two squads against Chelsea and Getafe.
West Ham target Isco helped Chelsea?
The Spaniard, 29, will become a free agent in the summer and has drawn frequent links with a surprise move to West Ham.
With his future set to lay away from the Bernabeu, questions are being asked about his commitment to the cause.
Indeed, one fan named Isco when responding to a tweet from Madrid Zone referencing Ancelotti’s measures to avoid another leak.
That caught the attention of Isco himself, who fired back at the accusation.
The forward replied on Twitter: “Isco is not [the mole], since I am not summoned and I have not attended the technical talk, to send hate elsewhere! SAD”
