Manchester City Transfer Report: Pep Guardiola Plotting £75m Bid For Real Madrid Star Isco
Manchester City are plotting a stunning summer bid to sign Real Madrid midfielder Isco, according to reports.
After missing out on Alexis Sanchez and Riyad Mahrez in January, manager Pep Guardiola remains on the hunt for an additional creative talent in midfield.
Guardiola is apparently a big fan of Isco and is keen to bring him to the Etihad Stadium amid reports the 25-year-old’s Real future is in doubt.
The LaLiga giants are said to be preparing for a major squad overhaul this summer after a dreadful league campaign – with Zinedine Zidane’s side 15 points adrift of leaders and rivals Barcelona.
There are claims Isco fears his first-team opportunities at the Bernabeu could be damaged by any incoming players.
And, according to The Sun, the Spain international is ready to leave Los Blancos and seal a move to Man City when the summer transfer window opens.

It is also claimed Isco ‘wants to play under Pep by all accounts’.
