Real Madrid transfer news: Real Madrid willing to sell €120 million superstar to fund move for world-class wizard and more - January 16, 2019
Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid transfer news for the day! Here are the top stories surrounding the Galacticos for the night!
#3 Inda makes Isco claim
Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda has claimed that Real Madrid midfielder Isco has interest from Manchester City. The Spaniard has lost his place in the starting XI of the Galacticos and it seems as though Santiago Solari trusts the youngsters much more than him.
As a result, a move out of the Bernabeu has been touted for the former Malaga man and according to Inda, Isco received a call from Manchester City assistant manager Mikel Arteta, who asked him if he wanted to move to the Etihad.
"Everyone knows that Guardiola loves Isco and 10 days ago or less, a person of absolute confidence of the coach called Isco and asked if he, at this time, would be willing to take the step to go to the City,” he said.
“The person who called him was Mikel Arteta.”
Inda then went on to claim that the Merengues don’t seem to require the player as they are willing to use him as a swap card to bring either Eden Hazard or Kevin De Bruyne. Furthermore, he stated that the Malagan has lost the trust of his peers in the dressing room at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"Madrid are going to try and put Isco in the operation for Hazard or in a possible operation for De Bruyne. In the Bernabéu, they say that he is not for sale, but I believe that it is not the case due to the disaffection with the dome, the coach and the costumes.
“The core of the dressing room is not with Isco because they consider that he is going free and is out of shape."
