The midfielder is in cold war with Solari and it seems Madrid still believe he’s a part of the team.
Isco’s future at Real Madrid seems to be one of the most intriguing stories for the summer. Since the takeover of Solari, the former Malaga player has been frozen out from the playing XI. With the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all keen to sign the Spaniard, Isco is thinking for a summer move. It seems Real Madrid have already blocked three offers for Isco.
Isco has barely been used by the Argentinian manager this season.
The likes of Dani Ceballos and even Federico Valverde being preferred to him. Isco is clearly not a fan of this situation. Especially given the fact that he can literally walk into the first choice line-up of any other side across Europe. The former Malaga midfielder did not leave in the January transfer window to solely hang on and wait to see if Madrid’s managerial state changes in the summer. However it does not like look Solari will be leaving.
That means Isco has got to make the walk out keeping in mind the best interests of the club as well as the player. Real Madrid will most certainly add a buyback clause in his potential deal during the summer. But they are already clear about not wanting to sell the 26-year-old to three clubs- them being Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich. Barcelona are refusing to rule out a transfer for Isco given his special talent.
Josep Bartomeu has spoken about an approach for the player if he is available for sale. Juventus are in contention having already signed Cristiano Ronaldo last summer. A move to Bayern Munich is also on the cards knowing that their team’s core is ageing.
Given the release clause of Isco valued at €700 million, clubs will be reluctant to pay that amount. There are a lot of clubs keen to sign Isco. It seems Real Madrid may accept a decent offer or will be tempted to sell if a modest fee comes. However, they may use Isco to lure one of their top summer targets.
