Defensa Central have reported that Real Madrid are confident that they will be able to sell midfielder Isco in the summer transfer market. 

It was reported earlier this month by the Daily Mirror (06/06/21 – page 77) that Tottenham were interested in signing the Spanish playmaker.

The Mirror claimed that Spurs were willing to pay £14m for his services and offer him the prospect of a three-year contract in North London.

Even with the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti at Los Blancos, Defensa Central claim that Madrid still want to sell Isco as he is in the final year of his contract. The Spanish club are apparently confident that a deal will be done.

TransferMarkt claim that Isco is now worth just £16m in the current market, even less than Madrid paid Malaga for him back in 2013 (£27m).

Last season, Isco played just 25 La Liga games and didn’t score a single goal, recording just two assists in that time (TransferMarket). In fact, he played just over 1,000 minutes in all competitions last time out.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I just think that Isco is a player of yesterday. There are many other playmakers, such as Marcel Sabitzer, who I would rather go for this summer than take a £14m gamble on the Real Madrid man. I just can’t see him thriving in the Premier League.
