Chelsea rival Man City for signing of Real Madrid playmaker

iscoManchester City and Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have had to be separated this afternoon, as they clashed after hearing that the two Premier League sides are going head-to-head in the transfer market.

The Daily Express states that Manchester City have been joined by Chelsea and Juventus in the race for Real Madrid’s unhappy playmaker Isco.

Isco has struggled for first-team football this season and the 23-year-old is open to a move, with City heavily linked to the Spanish international due to his links with Manuel Pellegrini- who managed him at Malaga.

Manchester City want to complete a loan move, with a permanent move in the summer, whilst Juventus have made approaches to land the playmaker in a £26m deal. Chelsea, meanwhile, what the signing at the end of the season.

Isco fears for his place in Spain’s Euro 2016 squad at the end of the season if he is not playing regularly but the situation could change with Zinedine Zidane taking charge of the underperforming Spanish giants last night.

Our landlord believes Juventus will go all-out to sign Isco, as they look to replace Andrea Pirlo, but he touts City as the favourites for the Spaniard.

Should City splash the cash to land Isco this month? Let us know in the comments below!
