Real Madrid replaced Julen Lopetegui with Santiago Solari on a caretaker basis, and two weeks later his appointment was made permanent.

Since the Argentine manager took charge at Santiago Bernabeu, Isco hasn’t started a match for the Champions League winners.

An earlier report from Mundo Deportivo suggested the relationship between the pair is ‘very bad’.

Manchester City’s interest in the midfielder was discussed by the Catalan newspaper in November and now Eduardo Inda has provided an update about the Spain international in El Chiringuito.

The former Malaga star’s situation with Los Blancos will only attract interest from other clubs.

Inda further claims that Isco has told his teammates he wants to leave the club and is ready to join the English outfit in January, if the latter makes an offer for his services.

Sport has more comments from Inda in their report and he goes on to further mention the La Liga giants are also willing to let the player leave in the mid-season transfer window, if they receive the right offer.

Linking City with Isco is the go-to rumour in Spain whenever the player has any career issues, but he may have missed the boat a long time ago, when he snubbed them on leaving Malaga.

El Chiringuito can feel more like an entertainment broadcast than a serious football news programme.
