Tottenham fans always seem to get their hopes up over signing the next big star whenever the transfer window opens. The silly season always hits the Lilywhites hard, and this month looks set to be no different as we’re just seven days in and already links have appeared between Tottenham and Real Madrid’s Isco, a move which simply won’t happen.
Tottenham Hotspur target Isco looks set to leave Real Madrid after again being left out of the latest match-day squad and still yet to start a match under interim manager Santiago Solari.

The 26-year-old Real Madrid star is widely regarded as one of the world’s best midfielders, however, at the moment the Spaniard is struggling for game time under Madrid’s new interim manager, Santiago Solari. The ex-Malaga man has completed 90 minutes just three times this season in his 19 appearances, and he was an unused substitute yesterday as Los Blancos fell to a 2-0 home defeat against Real Sociedad.
The next step for Isco does look to be away from the Santiago Bernabeu, but that doesn’t mean he’s Tottenham bound. At the age of 26, he still has so much to offer whoever he signs for, and if he does leave the club then the likes of PSG, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Manchester City will all be on high alert, leaving a club with the financial capabilities of Tottenham in the dirt with little hope of getting the deal over the line.

Can't wait for him to sign for someone else and score a winner against us.

We simply could not afford him….end of discussion

Not in a million years will this happen

The Lilywhites would love to sign Isco and would snap Florentino Perez’s hand off for him, but they all know that this one simply won’t happen.
