A few days after Sami Khedira's journey to Turin to join Juventus was made official, we learn today about another Real Madrid player who might be following his steps this summer. According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Allegri has expressed his interest in signing a new world class #10 for the 2015-2016 season, and Isco Alarcón is one of his main candidates for the spot.

The move would undoubtedly make sense for Juventus, as the importance of Pirlo in the team will need to be reduced and his spot as a defensive midfielder will be occupied by Marchisio, so the #10 spot in Allegri's 4-3-1-2 formation is vacant. There have been rumors throughout the season that Juventus' managing board would not mind to spend big money in this position, and that is why high profile players like Isco himself or Oscar, from Chelsea, have been brought on the table. However, it seems quite unlikely that Los Blancos will accept to sell one of their greatest prospects to a direct competitor for the Champions League.
