Isco to Juventus: The Italian champions reportedly completed the signing of Aaron Ramsey, with the player set to join the club in summer.
Juventus made a major breakthrough in the January transfer window earlier this week as they reportedly completed the move for Aaron Ramsey.
It was reported that the Welshman had agreed a 36 million pounds deal with the Italian side, and that he will join Juventus next summer.
However, Juventus’ transfer plans for the window aren’t limited to the completion of Ramsey’s deal.
According to transfer expert and football journalist Gianluca di Marzio, the Italian side is preparing a move to secure Isco’s transfer from Real Madrid as well. The Spanish midfielder has had a difficult time at the club this season and Sergio Ramos’ comments after the Copa del Rey game have fuelled speculation.
Isco to Juventus:
Isco’s situation at Real Madrid is complex at the moment. The player has lost his place in the starting XI under Santiago Solari, and it has led to speculations over his move away from the club.
Even when Isco stated that he would fight for his place in the Real Madrid first-team after the Club World Cup victory, the speculations over his move have grown stronger in the January transfer window.

🤐😰 Isco has liked a tweet saying…
"He puts Ceballos, Casemiro who's not in form, he will even put himself who retired 20 years ago before putting Isco'
