Real Madrid prepared to sell Isco for £64m

Manchester City have entered the race to bring Spanish playmaker Isco to the Premier League, according to the Express.

It has been reported that a number of England's elite clubs are interested in the Real Madrid star, with as many as four sides now seemingly in the race to land him. 

Premier League interest 

As well as City, rivals Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been credited with interest in the player, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the clubs will step up in their pursuit of his services in the next transfer window. 

In fact, it has been suggested that Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini, who previously worked with the star at Malaga, is ready to make a winter swoop, but his huge price-tag could scupper any potential deal. 

With Real Madrid currently valuing their man at the £64 million mark, it seems extremely unlikely that Manchester City would be able to spend that much on him in 2015. That's because of the club's ongoing battle with Financial Fair Play and the restrictions that have been implemented on them. 

Will United land him? 

The likes of Manchester United, though, may well be able to afford his services in January or the summer transfer window. After all, under Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, the club haven't been afraid to splash the cash after breaking their own transfer record on two occasions in 2014. 

With the array of attacking talent already at Manchester United, it would certainly come as a surprise if the club brought Isco to England, but stranger things have happened. 

For now, though, Manchester United will turn their focus to this weekend's Premier League fixture schedule. The Red Devils travel to Villa Park to take on Paul Lambert's Aston Villa side as they go in search of securing their seventh victory in a row. 

Premier League champions Manchester City, on the other hand, play host to Crystal Palace as they look to close the gap at the top of the league table.
