Isco has expressed a firm desire to depart from Real Madrid.

The Spanish international has reportedly grown fed up with life under Santiago Solari, and is now looking for a new challenge away from the Spanish capital.

In fact, the player has already told his father, who is also his agent, to establish contact and schedule meetings with several European juggernauts, and facilitate a transfer as soon as possible.

So far, as many as five giants, viz. Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and Juventus have expressed their interest in the playmaker’s services.

However, Isco is said to prefer a move to PSG, with his Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema urging the midfielder to secure a move to his native France.

Paris United further claim that the Ligue 1 champions’ president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, met with Isco’s father on Friday to discuss the potential switch.

While a transfer to Barcelona looks highly unlikely given their rivalry with Real, Manchester United are also far from favourites, given the number of players who occupy the same position already in their possession.

Chelsea, however, could stand a genuine chance of landing the 26-year-old, provided they make use of Eden Hazard, who is eager to make his dream move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Where will the Spaniard eventually end up?
