Real Madrid midfielder linked with Italian consecutive champions

The currently injured Spanish star could soon be on the move.

Juventus have reportedly made Real Madrid midfielder Isco one of their main transfer targets.

Isco has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Bernabeu, playing the full 90 minutes on just three occasions from 27 La Liga appearances last season. It is thought that the midfielder, who completely fell out of favor at the club under previous boss Santiago Solari, had been prepared to leave Real Madrid this summer.

Madrid were unwilling to let the 27-year-old leave this summer in the hope that he would prove to be an important player during the 2019/2020 campaign, but he is yet to leave a mark, as he has suffered a hamstring injury against Valladolid.

It is now Calciomercato who claim that Serie A champions Juventus will launch a bid to land Isco in 2020. The Bianconeri may be forced to wait until next summer rather than January to get the Spain international, with the report claiming that a bid of €75 million could be enough to lure him away from the Bernabeu.

Isco has a running contract with Los Blancos until 2021, but found the net just three times in a mere 11 La Liga starts last season, with his future appearing to be in the balance.

Madrid, meanwhile, have been linked with big-money moves for the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba in 2020 and would need to raise significant funds if they are to bring in any of that trio.
