Real Madrid Transfer News: According to a report by Italian daily Gazzetta Dello Sport, Isco has surfaced as a target for Fiorentina in the current transfer window, with the club considering a potential cut-price move for the midfielder.
Real Madrid will not stop Fiorentina from signing the out-of-favour Spanish midfielder if they come knocking.
Over the course of his career, Isco has fallen short of his full potential since joining Real Madrid from Malaga. The Spanish playmaker came at the Santiago Bernabeu as one of the most highly rated players in Europe. However, he has failed to produce results continuously since joining.
Isco’s situation has deteriorated dramatically in recent years, who has been reduced to the role of a supporting cast member.
This has never been truer than it is now in the current season, as Isco has appeared in only two of the 26 games that the team has played thus far, accumulating a total of 195 minutes of playing time.
Isco’s time at Real Madrid is coming to an end in the summer when his contract with the club will expire. The Spaniard sorely needs a fresh challenge to resuscitate his stalled career. He needs to compete for a spot in the national team for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
Real Madrid Transfer News: Isco does need a way out
And Fiorentina might provide him with a way out of Real Madrid as early as the January transfer window if he wants to go.
Real Madrid and Fiorentina have a fantastic working relationship. With the Serie A club taking Alvaro Odriozola on loan for the 2021/22 season from the LaLiga giants.
Several other Real Madrid players, notably Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral, have also been connected with La Viola. Isco is the most recent to be identified as a possible transfer target.
Fiorentina might benefit from the presence of the 29-year-old if he can recover his best form in the coming months.
Despite his problems with Real Madrid over the previous several years, Isco is highly regarded by the Serie A club. Moreover, with Real Madrid willing to sell the player, a transfer to the Premier League in January might be imminent.
Fiorentina’s salaries, on the other hand, might prove to be a source of contention. Even though they stand to gain a substantial sum from the sale of Dusan Vlahovic.
If a transfer to Serie A does not materialize, Isco might end up playing for a team in England or Spain. He has been courted by both Tottenham and Sevilla in recent weeks.
