One year ago, Isco was arguably Real Madrid’s best player as the gifted midfielder formed a brilliant trio in the middle of the park with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
While Modric and Kroos provided guile and control, Isco provided inspiration and highlight reel moments, as the Spaniard was a driving force in Real Madrid’s end of season surge towards the domestic title and the Champions League title.
Isco then went up a notch at the start of this season, as his brilliant performance against Barcelona at the Nou Camp brought the cheers from the Catalan crowd. The Spaniard was superb and was suddenly talked about as one of the very best in world football.

Isco is apparently feuding with Ronaldo within the dressing room, which is why the pair have been so poor together on the pitch. Isco and Asensio have formed a power couple at the club and feel that Ronaldo has too much influence at the club.
Chelsea are now extremely keen on Isco, and are ready to offer Eden Hazard in exchange for the deal to happen this summer. Hazard has been a long time target for Real Madrid, and parting ways with Isco in order to make this move happen may be appealing to Florentino Perez.
