There has been certainly plenty of speculation surrounding Real Madrid’s Isco in recent weeks and another club has joined the hunt for his signature.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with the Spaniard but his destination could actually be a Premier League rival.

That’s because, according to Marca, Spurs are ‘crazy’ to sign the midfielder and want to make their move in the January transfer window.

Isco is struggling to play first-team football at the Bernabeu and Mauricio Pochettino is well aware that there will be plenty of clubs sniffing around next summer.

Therefore, he’s desperate to make his move for the 24-year-old this winter where he will face less competition to sign him.

Daniel Levy shares Pochettino's opinion and is likely to grant the manager the funds to make the signing as soon as possible.

Isco on his future

This week, Isco realised that he may need to make a move to stop his career from stalling as he struggles to convince Zinedine Zidane of his abilities.

"I have been two months, practically, without playing," he said, speaking to Marca.

"It's difficult when you're training well and the boss does not put you in.

"But in the end it's my own fault. In the end it is me who is responsible. I want to see where I can improve to get in there.

"I am not going to give in easily. I know I will be a success. I don't know if that will be with Madrid - I hope so. But if not, I will be a success somewhere else."

Pochettino's interest

Pochettino obviously knows Isco very well from his time managing in Spain with him being Espanyol boss from January 2009 to November 2012.

During that time, Isco was making his breakthrough at Valencia before switching to Malaga as he began his impressive career.

Since then, Isco’s career has taken off with him earning a €30 million to Real Madrid in 2013, where he has made 154 appearances.

But it seems his time at the European champions is coming to an end with plenty of interest from England and across Europe with Spurs now heading that race.
