Isco will only leave Real Madrid for two clubs

Most of this summer’s high-profile transfers have already been completed, but one deal that could still happen before the window closes on Wednesday involves Isco.

Real Madrid have advised the Spaniard to leave the Bernabeu on loan in order to avoid spending most of the next four months on the substitutes’ bench.

Los Blancos have reportedly decided to keep James Rodriguez in the squad - and with Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez and Mateo Kovacic also competing for that No. 10 role, Isco’s feature at Madrid looks bleak.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Isco doesn’t want to leave the Bernabeu but has accepted that he won’t play much if he stays.

A loan move would leave him with time to consider his options over a permanent transfer - and there are two clubs the 24-year-old is reportedly prepared to move to on a temporary basis.


The first is Malaga, where Isco first established his reputation as one of Europe’s most gifted playmakers.

The player and his entourage would prefer a move back to the city where he was idolised for two seasons before completing a €30 million move to the Spanish capital.


And the other potential destination is Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino is understood to have spoken with Isco in a bid to lure him to White Hart Lane, although the attacking midfielder has doubts over whether or not English football would suit him.

Isco is hardly the most physically-imposing of players, although the likes of Christian Eriksen, Juan Mata and Riyad Mahrez are proof that you don’t need to be built like Zlatan Ibrahimovic to flourish in the Premier League.

If Pochettino can tempt Isco to north London, it will be a major coup for Spurs, who have won just one of their opening three Premier League matches this season.

Isco is one of the world's top playmakers

The Spain international, when on form, is easily one of the best playmakers in world football, capable of making the difference in the biggest matches.

His confidence has been dented over the past 12 months, but a temporary move away from the bright lights of the Bernabeu could be just what is required to get his career back on track.

Will Isco end up at Tottenham or Malaga this week? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
