AC Milan are ‘ready to close’ a swap deal with Real Madrid involving Isco and Suso, according to reports in Spain.
Despite this he remained with the Rossoneri, but the Spaniard has struggled for form this season, only managing to register one assist in the opening six games – of which Milan have lost four.
Reports in Spain earlier in the week first floated the idea of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez being interested in the former Liverpool winger.
A possible exchange with Isco was mentioned, and now Il Milanista – who cite Don Balon – has gone one further by suggesting that the swap deal can take place in January.
Both players are having a difficult season, and the Spanish media believe that Real will let Isco leave and take a chance on Suso, who has been linked with them in the past.
Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban meanwhile want to bring a ‘real champion’ to Milanello, something which Isco is considered, the report continues.
