Real Madrid playmaker Isco is “ready to leave” the La Liga champions in the January transfer window, according to Marca. The Spanish newspaper claims that the 28-year-old is frustrated with his lack of first-team football and his manager Zinedine Zidane wouldn’t stand in his way if he wants to move in the New Year.
The attacking midfielder is keen to be selected in Spain’s squad for the European Championships but after making just three starts for Real this campaign, he has finally decided that he needs to leave the Bernabeu.
Marca suggest that England is “his most likely” destination, due to previous interest from Manchester City, but the Citizens are not believed to be the favourites to sign Isco.
Earlier this week, there were reports that Everton and Arsenal were the two teams keenest on signing the Spaniard. Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti worked with the player at Real while the Gunners are in search of a replacement for Mesut Ozil.
