The January transfer touchpaper is about to ignite in a frenzy as three Premier League clubs enter a skirmish for a certain Spanish star.
Once again, Isco has been writing the headlines as his departure from Real Madrid looks imminent, after falling from grace with both the management, and, most significantly with the supporters.
Chelsea have entered the running alongside Arsenal and Manchester City to snatch up the talented Spain international who reportedly has a £70million bounty on his head, according to The Sun. For any of the three clubs he would become their record signing.
Whilst Manchester City are stocked full of talent – arguably having the most depth in squad of any team in Europe – and competition for places would likely greet his arrival at the Etihad. Furthermore, he’d be ineligible to play in European competition thanks to both clubs progression in the Champions League.
Isco could well be served with a move to Stamford Bridge to be welcomed into the starting XI week in, week out, complementing the outstanding talismanic Eden Hazard, in front of a solid midfield duo of N’golo Kante and summer signing Jorginho.
