Arsenal, Spurs and now Manchester City are all reportedly willing to snap up Isco, should Real Madrid sell, after the player admitted that his future isn’t perhaps as certain as everyone thought.
The Gunners were linked with the 24-year-old pretty much all summer but – obviously – nothing came of it and, considering we’re not short of midfielders, you can probably understand why.
Spurs were also heavily linked and now Manchester City, clearly feeling left out, have apparently joined in the chase.
Interestingly, the 24-year-old, who appeared so certain of his future just months ago, has now spoken to Marca, claiming that he finds it odd that a new contract hasn’t been brought up yet and that it’s down to Real if he renews.
“The truth is that I have not yet thought about it, nor have they asked me to renew, so I am calm,” he said.
“I take it day by day, which is important.
“It seems a little weird [that Real haven’t spoken about it yet], but I can’t do anything.
“If they don’t want me to renew, I won’t go asking for it. It’s something for the club to decide, not me.”
It’s a difficult position to be in. His current deal runs out in 2018 so you can imagine he’d rather have his future sorted sooner rather than later.
Before, I would have said I doubt we’re even interested but now I don’t know.
