According to a report in the English outlet Metro, Liverpool and Manchester United are interested in signing Real Madrid star Isco in the summer. Isco is having a horrible season so far as his Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari doesn’t seem to have him in his plans. Although, Isco featured against Barcelona recently, Solari has previously slammed him for lacking professionalism. It is clear that as long as Solari is the manager, Isco would prefer to move away from Madrid. But with Madrid’s poor form this season, Liverpool and United might have to wait for the arrival of a new manager at the Bernabeu before pursuing the Spanish midfielder.
There might be a fire sale at Real Madrid this summer with many players reportedly unhappy and also with the club performing poorly. It has been clear for quite sometime that Real Madrid need to overhaul their squad but their Champions League successes built on the back of stellar individual performances and luck have created an illusion that all was okay at the club. Their failure to challenge Barcelona in the league over the past decade except in two season clearly shows the gulf between the two clubs. Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez is expected to take drastic steps in the summer unless they again pull off a miracle by winning the Champions League.
