The track leading to Isco as a potential replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu appears to have cooled due to his salary requests, a report claims.
Calciomercato.com highlight how important the No.10 is in Stefano Pioli’s system, operating as the all-important link between midfield and attack. That is why the new signing must guarantee quality but also balance in the non-possession phase, and Milan don’t want to make a mistake in choosing who will take over from Calhanoglu.
There have been contacts over a potential deal for Isco who could leave Real Madrid this summer after eight years at the club. He has international experience and technical quality which could help the team, and the good relations with Los Blancos could help the Rossoneri.
Real Madrid are happy to facilitate the exit of Isco at a low figure and with favourable payment methods, however the player’s first salary request is €9m net per season, €2m more than what he currently receives at Real Madrid. To ensure that a concrete negotiation can begin, he must lower his economic demands.

Yeah cut off the wage to one third, from 9M to 3M.
He has become a total waste now! Thanks for not coming to Milan.
Forget this 30 year old overpaid clown that hasn’t held down a starting spot anywhere and focus on 1. Sabitzer or 2. Luis Alberto. Sabitzer is 27, and can probably be had for 6m euro, which is a bit higher than Milan would like but I think worth it and cheaper than the 9m wanted by Isco. And he will be hungry for success, unlike Isco.
