December 6, 2018

Real Madrid playmaker Isco is wanted by Premier League trio after falling out of favour at Santiago Bernabeu, according to the reports from Britain.

The Spain international midfielder has yet to start a game since Santiago Solari at the Los Blancos.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s playing time in six games under Solari is just 78 minutes, and the was left out of the Los Blancos squad entirely for the trip to Italian giants AS Roma on Tuesday evening.

Manchester United have already been tipped to make an approach for Spanish midfielder when the transfer window will be re-opened for business in January, however, The Mirror claimed that they now face competition from domestic rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

The Blues are believed to be seeking a replacement for Real Madrid target Eden Hazard, potentially leading to a player-plus-cash deal, while Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be on the lookout for an attacking midfielder.

Solari has played down suggestions that he has fallen out with Spanish playmaker, who is under a deal with the Los Blancos until 2022.
