Manchester City remain highly interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder, Isco.
The Spanish midfielder has grown unhappy about playing in Real’s 4-3-3 formation and has a desire to play more minutes after losing a large part of his playing time to James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, both of whom came over to the club last summer.
This is not the first time Isco has been pursued by Manuel Pellegrini.
Two years ago, the City boss thought he had secured Isco’s contract, but Madrid swooped in at the last moment and stole the Spaniard.
Despite losing some playing time in Madrid, Isco has emerged as one of the better players in all of Spain.
Madrid are reported to have no interest in selling their midfielder, but if Isco demands to be removed from the team, City will be there waiting to sign him.
Pellegrini is said to be willing to fork anywhere up to £33m for Isco’s signature if he becomes available.
