Manchester City and Chelsea could reportedly go head-to-head with each other in a bid to sign Malaga’s Spanish wonderkid Isco.

 20-year-old Isco could be available for a summer transfer following the financial difficulties of the Primera Liga outfit.

 Reports in the Spanish press, as cited by the Daily Express and Sky Sports, are circulating that Isco, whose full name is Francisco Roman Alarcon Suarez, has a €35million buyout clause which both clubs could be willing to meet.

 Despite signing a contract extension in January of this year which presumably ended rumours of a move away from La Rosaleda, Isco also recently admitted that he would consider a move away saying: "If a club decides to come and sign me they'll have to be a big club because it'd be a lot of money.

"Therefore, if it would help Malaga, I wouldn't have a problem accepting a transfer, if it benefitted both of us."

 It is a well-known fact that the Andalusain outfit are financially stricken – having sold both Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal to Arsenal earlier this season for cut-prices of £15 million and £10 million respectively.

 Isco is said to be one of Europe’s hottest young properties having won the Golden Boy award in 2012, an accolade previously won by world superstars Wayne Rooney and Lionel Messi.
