Report: Real Madrid offer Isco in exchange for Juventus superstar
What's the story?
According to Tuttosport, Real Madrid are willing to part ways with Isco in order to bring in Paulo Dybala from Juventus. It is believed that the Old Lady are also interested in landing Isco and Los Blancos are ready to exploit their interest by asking for Dybala in return.
While Dybala's transfer value is at least €100 million, Isco's valuation is in the region of €80 million despite a €700 million release clause.
In case you didn't know...
The void left by Cristiano Ronaldo when he completed the transfer to Juventus has had a detrimental effect on Real Madrid's season so far. As it stands, they are currently 5th on La Liga table having managed 30 points in 18 matches.
Meanwhile, reports suggest that Isco is on the top of Massimiliano Allegri's wish list since he joined Juventus. A move was even made for the Spain international in 2014, but it fell through.
Also The heart of the matter...
Evidently, Paulo Dybala is one of the hot prospects in the transfer market at the moment. With him only 25 years old and enjoying the peak of his career, his transfer value is bound to grow in the coming years. In consequence, Juventus are naturally expected to do everything in their power to hold on to the Argentinian ace.
As for Isco, he is going through a rough patch at Real Madrid having already fallen down the pecking order this season. Eager to make a move away from Madrid, the Spaniard has not started a single game since the October defeat at the Camp Nou.
Rumour rating: 6/10
Considering the present situation at both clubs, the report completely makes sense. However, Juve will be visibly reluctant to accept Real Madrid's deal despite their good relations following Ronaldo's transfer.
Real Madrid will have to wait until the end of the season to bring in Paulo Dybala. Besides, they will have to improve on their current deal considering how invaluable Dybala is to Allegri.Published 13 Jan 2019, 05:49 IST
