An important Real Madrid player who can be counted as a regular is eyeing a move to Barcelona in order to play alongside Lionel Messi.'
Real Madrid ended a dismal season with a 2-0 defeat to Real Betis in the Santiago Bernabeu, their 18th of the campaign. Meanwhile, arch rivals Barcelona missed out on a chance to lift the UEFA Champions League but are marching towards a domestic double, their second in a row, and also the fifth successive Copa del Rey.
The Whites are going to sell off some key players once the transfer window opens and will sign better ones as well. Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos and Marcos Llorente are the three who have already been informed by Zinedine Zidane that they are not in his plans and there will definitely be more players who will have to find newer pastures.
It has been widely thought that Isco Alarcon could be among those heading out of the Spanish capital. Julen Lopetegui considered the Spaniard very important, but Santiago Solari nearly ruined Isco’s career during his time at the helm. Zinedine Zidane is keen on helping the former Malaga man rejuvenate, but he isn’t sure yet about keeping him in Madrid.
According to Diario GOL, the Madridistas’ biggest fear is that Isco would be headed to arch rivals Barcelona where he would be a tremendous hit. Reportedly when the attacking midfielder signed fresh terms with Real Madrid, he told Florentino Perez to pay him a certain amount of salary and failure in doing so would result in Isco being at Barcelona to play with Messi.
Consider all rationalities, it seems absolutely unlikely that Real Madrid will sell Isco to their Catalan counterparts even if they pay through their mouth. Meanwhile, Manchester City are interested in moving for the Spanish midfielder and will have to meet Real’s demand of 80 million euros to sign Isco.
