Real Madrid could cash in on attacking duo

Spanish giants Real Madrid could be set to offload both James Rodriguez and Isco in the summer transfer window, with numerous clubs linked with the attacking talents.

Playmaker Isco has struggled to dislodge forwards Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in Real Madrid’s attacking positions, with Rodriguez also ahead of the former Malaga man in the pecking order.

However, neither have had the season that they would have hoped for with Madrid president Florentino Perez apparently happy to cash in on the pair, according to a report in Spanish newspaper AS.

Manchester United were linked with Rodriguez prior to him joining Madrid in 2014 and are favourites to sign him this summer, although the La Liga side will still demand around £60 million for the Colombian should he become available.

Incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is rumoured to have earmarked Isco as a player he’d like to sign upon arriving at the Etihad in the summer, although he’ll face competition from Arsenal as they look to rebuild following another difficult season.

The combined sale would give boss Zinedine Zidane close to £100 million to spend in his first full transfer window as Madrid boss in the summer as he looks to put his own stamp on the team as they look to catch up with dominant rivals Barcelona.
