In the past few days, Man United’s record signing, Paul Pogba, has been heavily linked with a move away from the club.
Yesterday, we covered two reports claiming that Real Madrid are keen to offer Bale (via Marca) and Juventus are ready to offer cash plus Dybala to lure Pogba from the Old Trafford club (Nicolo Schira).
Today, Mundo Deportivo have discussed about the above mentioned proposals but they have also claimed that players like Isco, Matuidi and Sandro have been offered to the Red Devils as well. Our focus is on the Spanish international.
The Spanish source have claimed that the Los Blancos have offered 80 million euros plus Bale or Isco but United are in no mood of letting Pogba leave. It is mentioned that Real Madrid expect a gesture from the Les Bleus midfielder in the form of an official transfer request. After that, United will have no choice but to negotiate his departure.
Isco is one of the most versatile players around. The 27-year-old is naturally a central attacking midfielder but he can effectively play anywhere in the center of the park and on the flanks as well.
In our current squad, we do lack a quality CAM. Veteran Juan Mata has mostly played on the right wing for us and to be honest, he is now slow and past his best. In such a scenario, Isco would be a quality addition.
The former Malaga star was a key member of the Real Madrid squad that won three Champions League titles on the trot under the management of Zidane.
However, after the departure of the French boss, he became a bench warmer under Lopetegui and Solari. Isco only started 11 league games last season (5 starts after Zidane’s return back in March).
The La Roja attacker’s current contract with the European giants will expire in 2022 and back in May, Sport reported that he has got an inaccessible release clause of 750 million euros in his contract but Real would consider offers exceeding 120 million euros (£108million).
In your opinion, should United let Pogba leave and lure Isco? Not to forget, as mentioned above (Mundo Deportivo), with the Spaniard, Real have also offered cash worth 80 million euros.
