Isco’s playing time at Real Madrid has been restricted this season as the attacking midfielder has been on the pitch only for 170 minutes.

Zinedine Zidane has not used the Spain international in the Champions League fixtures so he’s been forced to settle for a place on the bench in the last two ties (injured in the first match).

Three days ago, we covered a report from AS that explained Arsenal and Manchester City are ‘crazy’ about the playmaker and a move to either the Emirates or the Etihad would be a ‘magnificent solution’ for the 27-year-old.

That’s because joining the Gunners or Pep Guardiola’s side would help him feature regularly and it could be vital for him to make it to next summer’s European championship with Spain.

Catalan newspaper Sport now brings a short update on Isco. They claim Arsenal and City ‘closely follow’ the player’s situation at Real Madrid and they both want him in January.

The La Liga winners have set a minimum price tag of €60m to sanction his sale.
