Tottenham Hotspur fans react to Isco performance v Italy

Tottenham Hotspur were linked with the 25-year-old back in February, and at times before that.

Isco of Real Madrid controls the ball during their International Champions Cup football match against Real Madrid at Hard Rock Stadium on July 29, 2017 in Miami, Florida.
	Barcelona won 3-2.

Isco scored twice on Saturday as Spain thrashed Italy 3-0 in World Cup qualifying.

Two excellent first-half goals from the Spaniard helped La Roja into a 2-0 lead by half time, before Alvaro Morata completed the scoring 13 minutes from the end.

Plenty of Spain fans will be loving the 25-year-old for his class, but Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been blown away by the Real Madrid man, too.

It was reported by The Mirror back in February that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino would make a move for the former Malaga man this summer, which never materialised.

Isco went on to help Madrid to a second successive Champions League crown under Zinedine Zidane, starting the 4-1 demolition of the Juventus in the final.

His heroics for Spain will only cause his star to rise even further, making him less attainable for Tottenham, but their fans have reminisced about the time they were linked with him.

Isco, who joined los Blancos in 2013, is certainly a class act and you wonder whether he will be at the Bernabeu for a while longer. Zidane is clearly a big fan of the playmaker so it is hard to see him leaving while the Frenchman remains in charge in the Spanish capital.
