Carlo Ancelotti refutes Everton’s links to Real Madrid’s Isco: ‘Bullsh*t’

Carlo Ancelotti refutes Everton’s links to Real Madrid’s Isco: ‘Bullsh*t’

Isco’s Real Madrid stint

Isco has been on Real Madrid’s books for just over seven years now, since joining from Malaga in the summer of 2013.

The Spaniard has gone on to enjoy a trophy-laden stint at the Bernabeu, bagging four Champions Leagues and two league titles along the way.

However, despite arguably being in his prime years at present, the 28-year-old has fallen somewhat out of favour under Zinedine Zidane.

The midfielder was in and out of Los Blancos’ starting XI for much of the 2019/20 campaign, and rarely completed 90 minutes in La Liga.

Just a couple of months into the new season, meanwhile, Isco’s woes have continued.

The Spanish international has managed six La Liga appearances thus far, in which he has failed to complete 90 minutes once.

‘Bullsh*t’

As a result, speculation has begun to mount that Isco, who has just under two years left on his current contract, could soon depart the Bernabeu.

It was even claimed recently that the gifted midfielder is keen to link up with former boss Carlo Ancelotti, and former teammate James Rodriguez, at Everton.

The prospect of having both Isco and Rodriguez in the same starting eleven would no doubt excite the Everton faithful.

However, Carlo Ancelotti has this week spoken out over his side’s links to Isco, in a less than PG manner.

When drawn on Everton’s reported interest in the Real Madrid star by DIRECTV Sports Co, the Italian went on to state that the Toffees haven’t started thinking about the January market yet, with the rumours little more than media ‘bullsh*t’:

“It is not true that I am behind Isco.

“We haven’t started thinking about the team for the January market. So those comments are, as they say here, bullsh*t.”
