However, one name that has come about is that of Golden Boy winner Isco and La Liga Breakthrough Player of 2012, who has been in superb form this season for club side Malaga.

Guardiola is said to have told his representatives already to look at Isco and has no trouble paying the £21m buyout clause in his contract.

Malaga would receive a huge profit on the young midfielder after they signed him for £6m from Valencia a couple of seasons back and coach Manuel Pellegrini may have to, given that the club's financial state continues to cause trouble.
