Real Madrid midfielder Isco has become unhappy with life at the Bernabeu and will hold discussions with the club regarding a move away from the Spanish capital.
The Daily Mirror reports the Spain international and his representatives will confront Los Blancos' hierarchy following the 23-year-old's fall down the pecking order.
And it seems Isco has his eye on reuniting with former boss Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, the pair having worked together during their time at La Liga side Malaga.

The Spaniard's representatives have addressed City about a potential loan move in January with a permanent transfer earmarked for the summer, suggested to be around the £25 million mark.
Pellegrini, however, has previously insisted the club won't look look towards new players in the January transfer window, though injuries might force his hand.
This isn't the first time Isco has been linked with the Citizens, of course. The two-time Premier League champions came close to a deal in 2013 before Real made a late move and secured his signing after an impressive summer for Spain Under-21s.
Like many players, with Euro 2016 around the corner, the midfielder believes he must pursue regular football away from the Bernabeu to ensure his place in Spain's 23-man squad in France.
Should a move to the Etihad fail to materialise, it's believed Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are tracking the Spaniard, whilst Juventus are also in the hunt for Real's young playmaker.
