What's the story?

According to Paris United, PSG President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has already held a meeting with Real Madrid midfielder, Isco’s father and agent - Paco Alarcón. The report further claims that the 26-year-old has had numerous conversations with Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez regarding a move to Les Parisiens.

The top-level PSG source understands that while Benzema told Isco about the city itself, Jese Rodriguez has dissuaded the midfielder from joining PSG on account of his own plight at the club. However, in spite of Rodriguez's advice, the Spain international is bent on completing a move to PSG.

In case you didn't know...

Isco, just like Real Madrid, has had a torrid start to the season. The former Malaga ace is no longer a permanent member in the starting XI under Santiago Solari. His relationship with the fans hasn't helped his case either after he was booed in the second half of Madrid's Champions League clash at home to CSKA Moscow.

The heart of the matter...

Isco still has his peak years ahead of him and is undoubtedly a hot prospect who is being eyed by many high-profile clubs. Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea have all reportedly expressed their interest in the Real Madrid star.

However, Isco appears to have set his sights on a move to the French capital. Madrid are also reportedly open to discussing a potential transfer and it's up to Paris Saint-Germain if they can come up with a workable deal complying with Financial Fair Play regulations.

Rumour rating: 6/10

Paris United is a very reliable source for PSG news and rumours. Isco would be a vital addition to PSG's star-studded squad and it's completely natural for the Ligue 1 champions to go after him.


What's next?

The winter transfer window is just around the corner and Isco is a player who can certainly trigger a bidding war.
