Manchester City tipped to beat Real Madrid to signing of Isco [Marca]
This morning in AS, Spain Under-21 star Isco revealed that he has offers on the table from both Manchester City and Real Madrid, this evening Marca suggest that the Malaga playmaker is less likely to be heading to the Bernabeu.
Joining up with former Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City looks to be the only viable option if a report in Marca is correct.
Essentially, Isco believes he will receive plenty more playing time at Manchester City than Real Madrid due to the presence of Mesut Ozil and Kaka at Los Blancos.
Ozil has been a first choice starter since joining from Werder Bremen and Kaka could well receive plenty more opportunities when Carlo Ancelotti takes over at Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have not given up on Isco and are still hopeful, but it looks like Manchester City are in pole position for one of the brightest talents in world football.
A midfield including David Silva, Isco, Jesus Navas and Yaya Toure, will have Manchester City fans licking their lips…
