Manchester City’s hopes of reuniting Malaga pair Manuel Pellegrini and Isco have been boosted by the news that Isco, the midfielder, wants to follow Coach Pellegrini to the Premier League, the
Isco revealed that he is aware of an offer for his services from Real Madrid but confirmed he wanted to continue playing under Pellegrini if the Chilean does, as expected, move to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the La Liga season. Isco added that while he appreciates the interest from Madrid and would totally dismiss a move to the Spanish capital, he is keen to join a club where he will play regularly.
“There’s an offer from Manchester City and I’d like to carry on working with Manuel Pellegrini,” Isco said, adding: “He’s my footballing father. He has given me all the confidence in the world and I’m very comfortable with him.
“I have to look at it calmly because it’s my future and it’s very important. I waver between the teams who want me because it’s my future. I know Pellegrini likes me,” Isco continued. “He told me and I’m proud that he wants me. It’s an honour although I don’t speak much English.”
“My father is looking after it and there are other offers apart from Manchester City and Real Madrid. But I can’t talk about them. I’m not closing the door on any team. But I don’t want to go somewhere and sit on the bench.”
Isco has been at Malaga since 2011, moving to the south coast after struggling to break into the Valencia team. He made his senior Spain bow in February 2013, playing the final half an hour of a 1-0 win over Uruguay in Qatar.
