Real Madrid have made it clear that midfielder Isco is available this summer at the right price, putting Arsenal and Chelsea on red alert, according to Spanish newspaper AS.
The report claims that Los Blancos have to sell at least one player before they can spend themselves and with coach Zinedine Zidane said to be unhappy with the 24-year-old’s lax attitude, he is open to the idea of letting the attacking midfielder leave the club. Isco is reportdely valued at around £67.8 milion by Real.
Another way in which Isco could leave, is if the La Liga giants sign Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic. The Daily Star reports that reporting that Zidane is ready to make a bid of £34 million for the Serbia midfielder, who’s also been linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus.
Knowing there is now a clear change in Isco’s availability, Arsenal and Chelsea, who have both been strongly linked with the Spaniard in the past, could reignite their interest.
Meanwhile, Middlesbrough’s hopes of signing Zinedine Zidane’s son Enzo for the season have increased after Real Madrid told the 21-year-old midfielder he could leave on loan, according to the Daily Mail.
