Isco has been heavily linked with Real Madrid departure recently. Manchester City are reportedly planning a £75 million bid to rejuvenate their formidable midfield, as David Silva turned 32 in January.
After shining for Spain during the latest international break, Isco aimed a small dig at Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, comparing the trust he’s been getting at international level to that at the club. Zidane responded by admitting he understands the frustrations of a player who isn’t playing as much as he’d like, but he also pointed out that Isco has always been a very important part of his team and the club have no intention of parting ways with him.
For his part, Isco would like to stay at Madrid, but only if his role in the team changes. For years now he has served as the ultimate squad player, deputizing for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luka Modrić and Toni Kroos. Given his quality, it is quite natural that he’s not happy with such a role anymore.
