Real Madrid midfielder Isco has responded to a fan on social media who suggested he is the 'mole' leaking the club's starting XI to a well-known radio station.
According to reports in Spain, the reason behind this early announcement is down to Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti knowing about the 'mole' in the Los Blancos dressing room who leaks the XI to a radio station.
Twitter account @theMadridZone posted an update on the situation at 6:37pm on Tuesday.
🚨| As expected Real Madrid announced the starting XI over 2 hours before kick-off because Ancelotti knows about the ‘mole’ in the dressing room who leaks starting XI to a well-known radio station. @defcentral #UCL— Madrid Zone (@theMadridZone) April 12, 2022
Real Madrid fans began to speculate as to who the 'mole' was, with one Twitter user suggesting it was Spanish midfielder Isco, who has made 14 appearances for the club in all competitions this season.
The 29-year-old then responded to the fan by saying he wasn't even in the talk when Ancelotti revealed the team.
He wrote: "Isco is not, since I am not summoned and I have not attended the technical talk. Send hate elsewhere! SAD."
Isco no es, ya que no estoy convocado y no he asistido a la charla técnica, a mandar hate a otro lado! TRISTES😂— ISCO ALARCON (@isco_alarcon) April 12, 2022
The Spain international has fallen out of favour under Carlo Ancelotti and with his contract set to expire this summer, Spanish publication El Chiringuito claim he's already decided join the Catalan giants in principle.
Barcelona's club president Joan Laporta is keen to bolster their squad with free agents due to their financial situation.
