Spain starlet Isco has been urged to move to Manchester City by Manchester United goalkeeper and Under-21 teammate David de Gea.

The Old Trafford number one is in Israel with the talented Malaga playmaker for the UEFA European Under-21 championships and believes he would be a success in the Premier League.

Isco has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City since it was all but confirmed that his manager at Malaga, Manuel Pellegrini, would be succeeding Roberto Mancini as Citizens boss.

However, the 21-year-old recently admitted he was torn between following Pellegrini to the Citizens or signing for La Liga giants Real Madrid.

De Gea may star for Manchester City’s fierce local rivals Manchester City but he feels the Etihad Stadium would be a good club for Isco.

"You never know what will happen, but I wish him well," De Gea is quoted as saying in a talkSPORT report.

"What I want is for him to go where he is needed. Manchester is fine to live in and City, even though they are our opponents, are a great club."

Spain are favourites to lift the U21 Euro trophy for consecutive seasons and it is unlikely any decision will be made on Isco until after the tournament.

Pellegrini was confirmed as the new Manchester City manager on Friday.
