Manchester United defeated Wolves last night to end the year in second place, just a couple of points behind champions and leaders Liverpool.
The Red Devils should look to further improve their squad in the January transfer window to mount a serious title challenge. As per the latest reports going on in the media, a proven quality attacker is on their radar.
Transfer: Man Utd in position to finally sign £215,000-a-week playmaker next month – Report
According to AS (press image provided below), Isco has decided to leave Real Madrid and his decision has put several top clubs on alert.
The renowned Spanish source have mentioned that the Los Blancos are prepared to get rid of his salary of 7 million euros per season (£122,000-a-week) and will let him leave if the asking price of 20 million euros (£18million) is met.
AS claim that the Man Utd are interested in hiring his services and they have the financial power to agree terms worth £122,000-a-week or more to sign the La Roja star.
However, it is stated that the likes of Juventus, Manchester City and Everton are also looking to secure the signature of the 28-year-old attacking midfielder.
Isco has played over 300 games for Real Madrid and he was a key member of the squad that won three CL titles in a row under the guidance of Zinedine Zidane.
Unfortunately, this season, the French manager has not preferred the former Malaga star, who has mainly been a bench warmer. So far, he has only started 3 games in the La Liga, moreover, he only featured for 13 minutes in the group stages of the Champions League.
Therefore, the 38-capped international should leave the Bernabeu to play regular first team football. He is a versatile talent, who can play as a winger and also as a CAM if needed.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does need to improve the quality and depth of the team’s offense. In such a scenario, an experienced star like Isco, who still has a few years left at the top and is available for cheap, would be a great addition. In your opinion, should Man Utd spend £18million to sign him next month?
