ML: Milan interested in €20-25m Real Madrid playmaker – future of Brahim could be intertwined

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in Real Madrid playmaker Isco and his future could be intertwined with that of Brahim Diaz, a report claims.

According to the latest from MilanLive, Isco seems likely to leave Real in the summer transfer window having fallen out of favour under Zinedine Zidane, despite an appearance in the recent Champions League game against Atalanta in which he showed off.

The Spaniard – who will turn 29 next April – has not gone unnoticed even by Milan. His name was linked to the Rossoneri during the transfer market in January and could be back in fashion in the summer.

The current problem is the salary that he earns but the growth decree could come to the aid of the Italian clubs in this sense, allowing a 50% tax cut if the player stays for two or more years. Juventus are thinking about the former Malaga star, as are Premier League duo Everton or West Ham.

Isco is under contract with Real until 30 June 2022 and his value is currently €20-25m. The Rossoneri will soon meet with Los Blancos to discuss the future of Brahim Diaz, whom Zidane likes, so it cannot be ruled out that Brahim is allowed to return and the LaLiga side sanction Isco’s move the other way.
