Isco transfer news: Real Madrid risk of losing their midfield star Isco as European clubs prepare move for the player.
Real Madrid are going through a struggling season. The side is yet to register a win this year, and suffered a stunning 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad last weekend.
The side finished 2018 on a high as they lifted the Club World Cup trophy in the UAE. However, their form in the league continues to be inconsistent.
As a result of their recent loss, they fell to fifth place in La Liga. Santiago Solari’s side is currently ten points behind league leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona.
And now, further bad news arrives for Real Madrid fans as it has been reported that Real Madrid could lose one of their midfield stars, Isco.
Isco transfer news:
Isco’s situation at Real Madrid has been a concern for the club. The Spanish midfielder has fell out of favour with Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari, and made substitute appearances in both the games this year.
As a result, the speculation regarding Isco’s move away from Real Madrid has increased.

The midfielder may have stated after returning from the Club World Cup win that his intention is to stay and fight for his place at Real Madrid, but that hasn’t stopped the European clubs to push for a move for the player.
The most recent club to add to list of Isco’s admirers is Juventus. The Italian champions are aiming to add Isco to their ranks and further bolster their attack around Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coutinho situation at Barca quite similar to Isco at Madrid – clearly talented and capable of big moments, but tactically they just dont fit.

:c Sadly if Juventus get Isco they're favourites to winning the champions league. They'll finally have that player that wants to receive the ball in the final third and in tight spaces; who's mainly there to create but occasionally pop up with a goal, burden will come off Dybala

According to Fox Sports (via Tuttosport), Juventus are set to launch an ‘official bid’ for the Spanish midfielder.
In the summer transfer window, Juventus completed the stunning transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo in a 100 million euros deal. And it has been reported that a lack of opportunities at the club could lead Isco to follow Ronaldo’s way into Serie A.
