City And Juventus Stepping Up Interest In Isco

Real Madrid midfielder Isco's relationship with new boss Santiago Solari is reported 'broken' following a bust-up at the weekend, according to Madrid-based radio station Cadena Cope.

It is now believed that Isco is willing to leave the club and Cristiano Ronaldo is keen for reunion with his former Madrid team mate at Juventus, however, Manchester City are ready to battle the Italian giants for his signature.

The Spanish international hasn't started any of Madrid's last six matches and has only picked up 78 minutes of game time throughout that period.

The 26-year-old's last start was against El Clasico rivals Barcelona when they got trashed 5-1, it was also Julen Lopetegui's last game in charge

Things got worse for Isco on Tuesday night when he travelled with Madrid to Rome for their Champions League clash, however, he didn't even make it onto the bench.

And according to Cadena Cope Solari only brought Isco to the Italian capital to avoid the controversy of leaving him behind.

Don Balon, another Spanish news outlet, understand that the club are willing to sell the midfield maestro but only for 70million Euros.

They also report that AC Milan, Napoli and Arsenal have been in contact regarding the player, however, they are only willing to pay 50million.

48.21% of punters have backed Isco to be a City player by the end of the January transfer window at 10/1, while a move to Juventus is 9/1.
