AC Milan and Juventus interested in Isco
Serie A giants AC Milan and Juventus are said to be keen to out-favor Real Madrid midfielder Isco in a move for Bosman this summer.
According to a report from a Spanish outlet Files, Isco’s next destination could be Serie A, with three Italian clubs showing interest in signing him for a transfer from Bosman in the summer transfer window. The disgraced Spanish midfielder looks set to leave Real Madrid as a free agent.
Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga in July 2013 and has since endured an upside-down run at the Santiago Bernabeu. The 29-year-old was widely regarded as one of Europe’s brightest young midfielders when he moved to Real Madrid but has failed to deliver on his promise for the past eight and a half years.
The Spaniard’s stock has dropped significantly in recent years, and he has collected just 342 minutes of playing time from 11 appearances in the current campaign. And after entering the final six months of his contract, Isco is set to leave Real Madrid as a free agent. The player’s next destination could be Serie A, with AC Milan and Juventus among his potential suitors.
AC Milan’s interest follows Brahim Diaz’s inconsistent performances since joining on loan from Real Madrid. And with Franck Kessie set to leave San Siro as a free agent, the Serie A giants will have to enter the market for a central midfielder, making Isco a viable target.
Interestingly, Kessie has been linked with Real Madrid, although Paris Saint-Germain could be his next destination. On the other hand, Juventus’ eagerness to sign Isco on a free transfer stems from their midfielders’ poor performances in the current campaign.
They managed to offload Aaron Ramsey, albeit on loan. But Juventus hope to sell the Welshman this summer. The Serie A heavyweights are also keen to remove Adrien Rabiot from their books, while Arthur’s future at the Allianz Stadium remains uncertain.
Besides AC Milan and Juventus, Isco is also a target for Fiorentina. What seems certain for now is that the 29-year-old Spain international will leave Real Madrid as a free agent during the summer transfer window.
