Report: Real Madrid ace Isco to discuss contract situation with his family amid Tottenham interest

Isco celebrates scoring for Real Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur target Isco has reportedly been offered a new contract by Real Madrid.

According to The Mirror, Real Madrid playmaker Isco will discuss his future with his family in the near future as Tottenham Hotspur remain keen on a January deal.

Isco, 24, made his name with hometown club Malaga following a 2011 move from Malaga, as he hit 17 goals in 82 games for the Andalusians to become one of Europe's top playmakers.

Real Madrid won the race to sign Isco in the summer of 2013, and he lived up to his burgeoning reputation with 17 goals in his first two seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, life has been tougher for Isco since the end of the 2014-15 season, as he's scored just seven goals in his last 60 games for Real, and has found it difficult to carve out a role under Zinedine Zidane.

That situation has led to speculation over Isco's future, and The Mirror report that Tottenham Hotspur are still keen on a January deal for the Spain international having missed out on a summer move for him.

Spurs have a host of talented midfielders already, with Mauricio Pochettino able to call upon the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele and Heung-min Son, all of whom can play in the number 10 role.

The report claims that Real Madrid have now offered a new contract to Isco in a bid to ward off interest, but he will allegedly take time to speak to his family about his future in 2017 before making a decision.

That may give Spurs some hope that they can make a move for him whilst uncertainty about his contract situation remains, but any attempt to sign him would require chairman Daniel Levy to loosen the purse strings for a big-name signing – something Spurs fans haven't seen happen too many times.
