Potential consequences of signing Isco

Potential consequences of signing Isco

Manchester United managed to come out on top against Southampton last time out in the Premier League, which helped push them into fourth position. 

The Red Devils will settle for nothing less than a place in the Champions League after enjoying an inspired run of form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Although, the Manchester club currently have their eye on a possible summer raid, as according to Tuttosport (via Daily Mail), Manchester United are considering a swoop for Real Madrid’s Isco.

Isco has established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in world football, so bringing him to Old Trafford would be a great move as he could take them to the next level.

With that being said, here are the potential consequences of signing Isco in the summer…

ED WOODWARD SPLASHES THE CASH

Isco’s current contract runs out in 2022 and he’s valued at £54 million (by Transfermarkt), so he won’t come cheap.

United’s rivals will look to strengthen in the summer transfer window, so Woodward will need to go big if he is to get the Red Devils back fighting for the Premier League title next season.

Therefore, Ed Woodward will inevitably have to splash the cash to sign Isco in the summer transfer window, which would be sure to delight supporters as he’s the type of player who could get United back among Europe’s elite.

ANDREAS PEREIRA DITCHED

Andreas Pereira has enjoyed a run in the side recently as Jesse Lingard is currently out on the sidelines suffering from an injury. And, the Brazil international managed to find the back of the net against Southampton last time out.

However, the attacking midfielder would find himself behind Lingard in the pecking order if the Englishman was fit, so Isco’s potential arrival could force United into ditching Pereira as there would be no room for him in the side or on the substitutes’ bench, with Lingard and Isco possibly being swapped in and out.
