Manchester United planning a €150m bid for Real Madrid outcast: But can they beat rivals Man City to the race?


Manchester United are planning to launch a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Isco who is also a transfer target for Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Isco has had a very contrasting season when compared to his previous campaigns at the Bernabeu as he has spent most of his time warming up the substitute benches. And this reportedly has not made the former Malaga midfielder too happy.

According to the Don Balon, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is keeping a close eye on Isco’s situations at Real Madrid and the Portuguese is planning to make a €150 million bid for the attacking midfielder during the summer transfer window.

Isco has played just 32 games this season across all competitions out of which only 19 have come in the La Liga.

Manchester United’s closest rival Manchester City are also planning to make a move for the 25-year-old as Pep Guardiola is a huge admirer of the midfielder and with David Silva ageing quickly, Isco can be a perfect replacement to his fellow Spaniard in the Man City midfield.
