According to the Guardian and Spanish publication Sport, Manchester City are interested in signing Real Madrid and Spain playmaker Isco in January.
The midfielder is reportedly to be valued at around £22million by Los Blancos.
The 23-year-old joined the Spanish giants in 2013 from Malaga and was regarded as one of the brightest young attacking midfielders in European football.
However, a wealth of superstars in the Real squad has prevented Isco winning a regular spot in the Los Blancos team.
Despite not being regarded as first choice, Isco started 28 La Liga games last season, scored four goals and created nine assists. However, the fact that both James Rodriguez and Luka Modric were injured for relative long periods help the Spaniard’s chances of playing time.
Isco played in a deeper role than usual last season, and showed that he is not just effective at attacking, but also did a very solid defensive job as well in a very attack-minded Real team.
No doubt Isco would be a quality signing for Manchester City. The question would be where would the Spaniard fit into the team? City has already spent big on attacking midfielders Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne this summer, so their squad seems well-stocked in that area.
It remains to be seen if the story has any truth, but Isco would definitely be a fine addition to the Citizens squad and the Premier League.
