Malaga playmaker Isco has suggested that he could follow Manuel Pellegrini to his next club, meaning that we could soon see him playing for Manchester City.
Isco, who has been the subject of summer interest from Paris St Germain and Real Madrid, would relish the opportunity to play under Manuel Pellegrini once again.
Isco told reporters: "He's been my footballing father and I know that he likes me and, for me, of course I would like to continue with him because he's given me all of the confidence in the world."
Malaga have endured a difficult period of time the last few seasons, with financial difficulties meaning that they have had to sell some of their best known players. Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal have both been two of the casualties, making transfers to Arsenal.
And it could soon be Isco that is the next player to depart La Rosaleda. But Isco, despite his eagerness to link back up with Manuel Pellegrini, has stated that playing time is paramount in his career.
"It's a very important decision for me and I don't want to get it wrong. I have doubts because I want to play, wherever it is, and that's the most important thing. I don't want to regret it after not getting many minutes.
"I'm not closing my door to anyone but my priority is to play and I don't want to be on the bench. We'll see what happens in the summer," continued Isco.
Pellegrini will leave Malaga after their final game of the season against Barcelona this weekend.
