Tottenham have been linked with a sensational swoop for Real Madrid playmaker Isco over the last few days.
The European champions are willing to let one of Isco or James Rodriguez leave the club before today’s deadline, and Spurs are reportedly interested in taking Isco on a season-long loan.
Real Madrid paid around £26 million to sign Isco from Malaga three years ago, but the Spaniard has struggled to make an impact at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Isco is still very highly rated, however, and would represent an impressive deal if Tottenham were to push this one through.
But the latest reports suggest the transfer is officially off.
Isco was considered by Spurs but right now is out of the equation

The Malaga president tweeted this out yesterday, suggesting Isco’s former club may have either missed out on re-signing the player to another club, or that Isco is set to stay with Real Madrid.

Do you think Spurs should have tried harder to sign Isco?
