Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is a long term admirer of Isco.
Spanish newspaper Marca isn't always the most reliable when it comes to incoming transfers. But when they report a Real Madrid player is up for sale, there's usually something in it.
Last night Marca reported Real are open to offers for long term Tottenham target Isco.
Isco has had an up and down relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane across the manager's two spells at Real.
This is Tottenham's big chance to sign the 27-year-old.
He is a player manager Mauricio Pochettino has made no secret of his admiration for.
Pochettino told AS in 2017: "Every manager wants to sign the very best and he is one of the best players in the world.
"He is one of the best in the world. I have seen him at different clubs and his creativity is simply outside of the norm. He is at the stage now where he is fully matured. His magic is plain to see."
AS reported in 2016 how Spurs tried to sign Isco on loan, only for him to be convinced to stay at Real.
He has gone onto win four Champions League medals, but now it seems the time is right for him to move on.
Isco made only 11 league starts last season for Real, a real waste of his talent. Pochettino is might be the right man to get the best out of him.
