Real Madrid midfielder Isco has revealed the one condition that will make him leave the Spanish capital.
Isco joined Real Madrid from fellow La Liga outfit Malaga back in June 2013. He signed for the Los Blancos for a fee of €30 million, becoming the then newly-appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti’s first signing for the club.
Despite arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu with very high promise, the Spanish international’s Real Madrid career never really kicked off, and he is far from being a regular starter for his club at the moment.
Isco’s playing style has been compared with the one of club legend Zinedine Zidane by the Frenchman himself, but ironically, the 24-year-old is stuck way down the pecking order under Zidane’s management.
The Spaniard has managed to start only 1 game for Real in the La Liga, whilst making 3 short cameos as a substitute. Moreover, he has not played at all for the reigning European Champions in the UEFA Champions League.
If things continue to remain this way, Isco may end up leaving the club next summer, as per his own comments.
“If I’ve still only made a few appearances by the end of the season, I’ll look elsewhere,” the midfielder said. “At 24 years of age, I have to right to better myself.”
However, Real Madrid seem to have already made up their mind, and are ready to offload the youngster next summer, according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol.
As per their report, the Spanish giants have already offered new contracts to star players Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Pepe, Keylor Navas, and most other – except for Isco, due to the fact that Zidane is prepared to let go of the talented playmaker.
If Isco does end up leaving, he will have a large number to choices to make his pick from, as numerous clubs from all around Europe have expressed genuine interest in his services. However, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Juventus are the ones that have majorly dominated all the headlines related to this story.
