Real Madrid midfielder Isco Alarcon appears to be ready to leave the Spanish capital. He is clearly frustrated with his role under new coach Santiago Solari and his relationship with the Bernabeu crowd is not as good as it was during the last few years.
Manchester City will try to sign the Spanish playmaker during the upcoming winter transfer window, according to reports from the British press, but Madrid will not let Isco go for less than €100 million, club sources told Managing Madrid.
Manchester City know that Real Madrid might not be willing to keep Isco if he is going to be a distraction. Right now, it looks like everything he does on the pitch is not as important as what’s going on outside of it.
Guardiola has always been a fan of Isco and the midfielder knows he will have a big role in the British club, so this transfer does indeed make a lot of sense, even if both clubs need to wait until next summer to complete such a big and expensive deal.
