A Spanish journalist by the name of Eduardo Inda, who works for El Chiringuito, claims Isco Alarcon wants to leave Real Madrid with Manchester City his preferred destination.
Real reportedly beat City for the transfer of Isco from Malaga in 2013, but even though he made over 40 appearances for Los Blancos every season since then, most of them were cameos off the bench, or filling in for injured players, or purely for rotational purposes. In that time, Real went through four different managers, and now with Santiago Solari as the fifth, Isco’s role hasn’t changed.
He has been reluctant to consider moving away from Santiago Bernabeu so far, but at the age of 26, the question of how long would he have to wait for a proper chance to become a regular member of the starting XI may have become a burning one.
Meanwhile, City manager Pep Guardiola may be considering options for a long-term replacement for 32-year-old David Silva (turning 33 next month), and Isco seems perfectly moulded for that role.
