Manchester United have held talks over a shock €75m swoop on Real Madrid, while Chelsea want to boost their attacking options with a €50m Mexican star, according to Saturday’s European papers.
ISCO’S AGENT HOLDS TALKS WITH MAN UTD OVER JANUARY MOVE
Isco is looking increasingly likely to leave Real Madrid next month, according to reports in France.
Paris United claims the Spain playmaker has been told he can leave the Bernabeu next month after falling out with new coach Santiago Solari – and his agent has already held talks with a number of suitors.
According to the report, PSG spoke to Isco’s representatives at the start of the week, but it’s claimed talks were then held with Manchester United, with a switch to Old Trafford also being considered.
Juventus and Chelsea are also credited with an interest, as too – more bizarrely – are Barcelona.
However, it’s claimed Isco will select between either United or PSG on who to join next month.
Isco, 26, has struggled for form and regular game time this season, having scored just twice and the report claims Real are ready to cash in on the player next month in order to generate the funds needed for a number of major signings both in January and the summer.
It’s expected that the Spain playmaker could cost as much as €75m.
