Big news is breaking in the Football Transfer Tavern which has left Manchester City supporters in a disappointed mood with talkSPORT among various news agencies reporting that Malaga starlet Isco has rejected City and has decided instead to join Real Madrid this summer.
The Citizens were understood to be the favourites for the 21-year-old’s signature after former Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini took the reins from Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium.
The Chilean’s strong relationship with Isco was assumed to be enough for the youngster to put pen to paper on a deal with the former Premier League champions.
However it now seems that one of the key players in Spain’s Under-21 European Championship triumph will remain in La Liga and link up with new Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti with betting suspended on the transfer.
Isco today spoke to leading Real Madrid based paper AS regarding the transfer rumours and said: “Real Madrid excites me – this is one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
Manchester City fans. Has your swoop for Isco well and truly hit the buffers? Can the Citizens still get their hands on him?
