According to Don Balon, Real Madrid are trying to get rid of Isco by all means.
Just like Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez, the Spaniard had dropped down the pecking order a long time ago.
Zinedine Zidane clearly does not fancy him anymore and is willing to see the back of him this January. Real already bid farewell to a host of players in the summer in an attempt to raise funds during these difficult financial times.
Isco is being forced out and the only team he would like to go to is Juventus. The Serie A champions are notorious for signing former stars and giving them a new lease of life. Juve’s frontline is also being led by former Real ace, Cristiano Ronaldo who is reportedly against reuniting with Isco.
Don Balon understands that the Portuguese has told Juve’s board to stay away from Isco since he is not the most efficient creator. Isco’s wages would also be significant in a midfield that already has a host of players fighting for starting roles.
The extent of truth behind these reports are questionable. But it would be surprise if Juventus added more to their midfield. Andrea Pirlo has a host of players to pick from and might need to get rid of someone to add anybody.
