The playmaker has been monitored by the West London club
According to reports in Spain, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is expecting an Isco enquiry from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in the coming days.
It is believed that the Russian is keen to know how much the Spanish international would cost, as Chelsea target big name signings to help turn their poor season around.
Speculation started after Jose Mourinho was seen attending Spain’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Ukraine on Monday night.
It was originally believed that he was watching the Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko, however, Spanish media outlet Marca claim that it was actually Isco who the Blues’ boss was keeping tabs on.
The rumours suggest that Chelsea might make an official bid for the 23-year old attacking midfielder in the January transfer window, but only if the price is right.
