Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are both interested in signing £63million-rated Real Madrid midfielder Isco in the summer. The Spanish club are ready to sell the midfielder in order to raise funds to bring in new players.
FutballNews understands that the money realised from the sale of Isco will be used for a record-breaking move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe this summer.
Apart from Isco, Madrid are also trying to overhaul the bloated squad in order to bring in new players in January and next season. The Spaniard, who has made close to 300 appearances for Madrid, has won four Champions Leagues and a La Liga title in his six-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Reports in Spain claim that PSG are set to battle Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City for the signature of the Spanish midfielder this summer. The French club could lead the way to land Isco if they sell Mbappe to Madrid. The World Cup winner is almost certain to quit the Ligue 1 giants this summer, so PSG may be wise to sell to Real in order to get something in return.
Isco, who joined the club from Malaga in 2013, has often left on the bench despite his obvious talent. But the Spaniard has been reborn this season after a 2018-19 to forget. His row with then-boss Santiago Solari saw him axed from the first-team squad.
But under Zinedine Zidane he has been playing – and thriving – playing in two-thirds of the available LaLiga minutes in 2020. Isco is under contract until 2022 and Madrid could opt to sell while he still holds strong value – currently rated at around £63m.
While PSG are hoping to sign him, El Desmarque claim a move to England is more likely. Tottenham and Liverpool have also been linked with Isco in years gone by, but as far as this summer goes, they appear to have not lodged fresh interest.
