From Spain: Milan close to announcing Real Madrid playmaker as first January signing

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are already preparing for the official announcement of Isco as a new signing from Real Madrid, a report from Spain claims.

According to TDFichajes, Milan wants to announce the arrival of Isco at the beginning of January as Stefano Pioli has specifically asked for the experienced playmaker given the injury problems that have plagued the attack already so far this season. Isco was wanted during the summer but the Spaniard decided to stay and fight for a place in the team.

However, the Rossoneri management have stayed in negotiations with Real Madrid and with Isco in the weeks since the window shuts and the agreement is practically closed. By January he will have only six months left on his contract and that is why a transfer fee of a few million should be enough.

An agreement with the player is well advanced and if nothing goes wrong he will become the first signing of January.

  1. Look, Isco is not the player he was five years ago when he was one of the top players in the world. But he has tremendous experience in major European competitions, in World Cups, etc. That’s a valuable addition to a young and inexperienced team. We obviously need the depth and it’s possible a move will rejuvenate him. I believe he’s only under contract for the summer so there’s not even a major commitment. I think this is a fair gamble with more potential upside than downside.

  2. If all goes well this might be a decisive add for getting us the scudetto!
    Agreed he is no longer a top player but hard to dismiss his values. He can easily fit well and be an asset.
    Kind of excited news, if true.

  3. Isco is good addition in terms of experience and depth but our attack is beginning to have more weak players. Hauge can come back since he can still play centrally and his wages are within Elliot budget.
