Liverpool Go On €42m Playmaker Alert

The Real Madrid playmaker Isco will quit the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer with Manchester United, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester City expected to lead the bidding for the 24-year-old, according to reports

talkSport reckons that the Premier League clubs “would be one of the most desirable options” for the Spain international after remaining on the fringes of the Real squad under coach Zinedine Zidane.

Jose Mourinho knows Isco well from his time managing Real and would love to bring in a 24-year-old that already has experience of working at a high-pressure company.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is also a huge admirer and could make a move if fail to sign long-term target Mario Gotze, knows him well following his recent managerial stint in Borussia Dortmund.

The €42m-rated Spanish international has been a good addition for Los Blancos and has racked up 28 goals and 41 assists in 179 games since joining from Malaga in 2013.

Because of the wealth of talent available to Real manager Zinedine Zidane, the 24-year-old does not enjoy much playing time at the Bernabeu — he’s only started 14 of his 22 appearances this season and completed 90 minutes just twice this season.

The creative Spaniard could be a good addition to either Old Trafford or Anfield clubs, as despite playing just 1.568 minutes for the Royal club this season he has had a hand in 12 goals in all competitions.
