Club could offer £50.8million playmaker to Manchester United – Report

Ramos and Isco

Paul Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford and one British source have consistently covered reports regarding his departure this month.

On January 03, The Sun exclusively claimed that Toni Kroos could join Man United in a deal which would see Pogba move to Real Madrid.

A day later, the British outlet reported that Italian champions Juventus are ready to offer former PSG star Adrien Rabiot in order to lure Manchester United’s record signing.

More recently, The Sun have covered another exclusive report and stated that the Los Blancos are keen on signing the French midfielder and they could offer a superstar and cash to get the deal done with the 20-time English champions.

Stars such as the likes of Bale, Kroos, Modric and Isco have been mentioned. Our focus is on the 27-year-old Spanish playmaker, who should be lured by United because the other three are in their 30s.

Isco is a versatile talent, who can effectively play in the central/attacking midfield. Moreover, the La Roja star can also play in the wide attacking positions if needed.

He moved to the Bernabeu in 2013 and in his first season, he was a key member of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad that won the Champions League. The Spaniard won three more Champions League titles under the management of Zinedine Zidane, who used to regularly start him.

However, in the current campaign, the French manager has rarely utilized the former Malaga playmaker in the midfield/attack and so far, he has only started 6 games in the league.

At Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to strengthen the midfield department in the summer transfer window even after letting Fellaini and Herrera leave in the past two windows.

On the other hand, Matic and Pogba have spent most of their time out injured. Furthermore, United do not have a quality central attacking midfielder in their squad. In such a scenario, luring a top player like Isco could prove to be fruitful for the Red Devils.

The 38-capped international’s current contract with the 13-time European Champions will expire in 2022 and as per reports (El Desmarque), he is valued at around 60 million euros (£50.8million).

In your view, should Solskjaer splash the cash to sign Isco?
