Romano: Real Madrid playmaker’s ‘dream’ is to play for Man City’s Guardiola amid Milan links

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could be set for a transfer battle with Manchester City to land Real Madrid playmaker Isco, according to reports.

The Rossoneri are struggling with the renewal of Calhanoglu, whose contract expires at the end of the season and as a result the risk of him leaving is growing by the week.

Calciomercato.it reported last week that Milan could try to sign the 28 year-old Isco to replace Calhanoglu, and that his valuation has dropped to a figure of around €40m.

According to the latest from Fabrizio Romano (via PianetaMilan),  Isco’s dream is to one day be coached by Pep Guardiola, who is currently at Manchester City.

Romano revealed: It is Isco’s dream to play for Pep. He’s a perfect player for Guardiola’s style of play.”

Therefore, it appears if the Rossoneri are serious about making an attempt for the Spain international they could very well face some strong competition from a City side who – although stacked in attack – are always looking for opportunities to bolster their depth.

    Isco doesn not correspond to club’s policy of singing u-25 players, nor does his salary demands that might exceed 5m. Therefore not sure what kind of battle is being talked about here.

    Go to Milan, we don’t want you at Manchester City, you had your chance to join us when Pellegrini was here and you chose Real Madrid, stay away from my club.

    We want the best at city and Isco is still regarded as one of the best so I can definitely bolster our squad depth. especially with the amount of ball we will be play in the next few months. City should sign him in Jan transfer

    We don’t need him at Milan, Isco is an impact sub, he is not a starter, look at how many opportunities he received at Madrid to be a starter, many after a great game as a sub, but in every game as a starter he failed to impress, or nailed down the starting spot, so he’s nothing but a super sub.
