Manchester City and Arsenal keen on unhappy Real Madrid star
Real Madrid midfielder Isco may have been part of the Los Merengues side that dispatched local rivals Atletico in the Champions League but it would appear that the Spaniard is far from happy at the Bernabeu.
Currently a target for both Arsenal and Manchester City, the 23-year-old has sparked renewed speculation over his future following comments made in a post-match interview on Wednesday.
Substituted off the pitch by Real manager Carlo Ancelotti with mere seconds remaining, the Spaniard appeared to be unhappy at the decision.
Speaking after the 1-0 victory, Isco said “I am not content, I thought I was playing well.”
Some way down the pecking order at the club, given the array of attacking talent at Real’s disposal, a summer move remains a distinct possibility for the Spain international.
Manchester City would have a notable advantage if Manuel Pellegrini remained at the helm of the club.
The Chilean worked with Isco at Malaga, with the pair part of a squad that progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
It was his form at Malaga that prompted a move to Real and it is thought that he would be open to the idea of reuniting with his former manager.
Arsenal is another potential option for the 23-year-old with the Gunners thought to be keen on bringing the Spain star on board this summer.
The north London club are expected to spend big in the off-season, as Arsene Wenger plots a renewed assault on the Premier League title next term.
