Chelsea Face Premier League Competition For Real Madrid Star
Chelsea will have to see off competition from England in their quest to sign Real Madrid midfielder Isco when the mid-season transfer window reopens in the next few weeks.
Isco is said to have grown frustrated with life at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu and has set his sights on a move away from the Spanish La Liga outfit.
Reports claim that the former Malaga playmaker has told club skipper Sergio Ramos that he wants leave Real Madrid.
Isco has found it hard to impose himself on the Real Madrid team this season in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Spanish international player was one of the players expected to step up for Real Madrid but the 26-year-old has not lived up to that expectation.
Ronaldo left Real Madrid this summer after a hugely successful nine-year spell with the club.
The Portuguese superstar signed for Italian Serie A champions Juventus in a club-record deal of around €100m.
Isco has struggled to perform for the Los Merengues with some reports claiming that he has fallen out of favour with manager Santiago Solari.
The Sun say that Chelsea will battle with fellow London sides Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal for Isco who is rated at around €90m.
