Inter Milan wants Isco from Real Madrid to improve their creative play in the middle of the park next season.
Antonio Conte bought Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur for €20 million in January 2020 for the same purpose. However, the deal hasn’t panned out as they expected.
The 28-year-old Danish creative-midfielder only managed 9 stars this season in Serie A. He has zero goal contribution yet. Once he was very close to leaving the club and going back to Spurs but that deal didn’t materialise at the end.
Inter want Isco for the creative-midfielder role
Isco was an integral part of Real Madrid‘s UEFA Champions League triumph from 2016-2018 under Zinedine Zidane. At that time he played his best football in his career.
But in recent times Zidane’s reluctance to use creative-midfielder Isco’s fitness issues has lead to him having a restricted role in the first-team.
The Spanish International has made 17 appearances in Los Blancos shirt this season. However, this season he has managed only 5 starts and assisted just once.
Real Madrid bought Isco from Malaga for €30 million in the summer of 2013. The four-time Champions League winner is contracted with Los Blancos until the summer of 2022. This will be the perfect time to sell him if Zidane doesn’t want him. Isco also wants to leave and play first-team football as he approaches his peak.
Inter will get Isco for the cut-price in the summer as he has only one year left on his contract. But it won’t be very easy for them to sign Isco as other Premier League clubs and Juventus are in the race to get his service.
If the Nerazzurri can successfully manage to land the attacking-midfielder in Milan then that will be huge for the fans and for the club. There is no doubt in his quality and Isco will perfectly complement Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
