Real Madrid star Isco, who joined the European champions for around £26 million in 2013, could still join Tottenham on a season-long loan before Wednesday night’s transfer deadline, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
Sport Witness have published details of Marca’s latest front page, which suggests Spurs have now officially asked about the availability of Isco.
Real Madrid are expected to let either Isco or James Rodriguez leave the club. James’ exit would involve a ludicrous transfer fee, so it is thought that Isco is the more likely of the two to leave.
Tottenham fans largely laughed off rumours linking the club to Isco at the weekend, but now it appears there is some truth to the speculation.
That’s not to say a deal is anywhere close to being finalised. Marca claim Isco’s transfer would be “difficult to close” at this stage.
Spurs supporters will remain optimistic, with reinforcements needed following the departure of Nacer Chadli and the potential exits of Ryan Mason and Heung-Min Son.
