The Daily Star brought the bad news to fans after claiming that Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, has ruled out any possibility of Isco leaving the club.
The news of Ancelotti’s desire to keep Isco will be a huge blow to Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers with the capture of Isco potentially being the difference between qualifying for the Champions League.
The recent talk by the bar has suggested that both clubs were preparing a bid for the attacking midfielder with Manchester City also monitoring the situation.
But despite the 22-year-old being hot property for most of the top teams in England, Ancelotti has said he is not for sale and that he is the future of Madrid.
Ancelotti said: “He had a great season last year & we have a lot of faith in him. He is the future of this squad.
“Isco & Illarra have a lot of personality and respect my decisions. They are always ready to play.”
Arsenal and Liverpool fans. Do you really need Isco in your squads given the attacking riches you both currently boast? Let us know your thoughts below.
