Arsenal behind Premier League rivals in race for La Liga playmaker


Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco favours a move to Manchester City, according to Don Balon (via Sport Witness).

The Spanish rumour mongers report that the Spaniard thinks City are best placed to compete at the highest level, compared to the other clubs that are interested in him.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Juventus are believed to be the 25 year old’s other major suitors, with the Spanish international tipped to leave the Bernabeu in the summer.

Isco has been in and out of the Real starting eleven since the turn of the year. He started the Spanish club’s Champions League quarter final first leg tie against Juve last week, but he hasn’t started a league match for over a month.

Still, he has played in 42 matches so far this season, and remains firmly in manager Zinedine Zidane’s plans. Whether the expected overhaul of Madrid’s squad in the summer will affect the playmaker’s standing in the squad, it is not yet known.

He could be sold to make way for new signings, but after only having signed a new five year contract back in September, it would seem unlikely.
