Real Madrid midfielder Isco is leaning towards joining Manchester City this summer.
Isco has received a bumper offer from City for next season, with the English champions-elect well aware of the midfielder’s frustrations at Real.
Diario Gol says City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken to Isco and told him he sees the Spain international as a first-choice in his midfield next season.
With Yaya Toure to move on and David Silva nearing the end of his career, Guardiola sees Isco filling the void and terms have already been tabled to his representatives.
Isco has found himself again sidelined this month with Gareth Bale’s return to full fitness. The Spain international coming to the realisation he’ll always be second best in the eyes of coach Zinedine Zidane in comparison to Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.
