Chelsea Join City In Targeting Unsettled Spanish Attacker
Chelsea will battle Manchester City for the signature of unsettled Malaga attacker Isco, with the Spaniard believed to have a £17m buy-out clause in his contract
Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Chelsea and Man City target unsettled Isco.
Chelsea will battle Manchester City for the signature of unsettled Malaga attacker Isco, according to the Mirror.
The 20-year-old has been hugely impressive since joining Malaga from Valencia in 2011, scoring 8 goals in 43 games, but the Mirror claim he’s grown frustrated with the La Liga outfit and Chelsea and Manchester City are understood to have been alerted to his £17m buy-out clause.
The report suggests Malaga are desperate to keep hold of Isco and are ready to offer him a bumper new contract – that would include a £30m buy-out clause – in order to persuade him to remain with the club. However, it’s also claimed that Man City are lining up a January move while Blues owner Roman Abramovich is also believed to have identified him as a potential new recruit.
Malaga have secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League after winning their group, so it would be a huge blow if they were forced to part with their star player midway through the season.
If the Mirror’s claims of a £17m buy-out clause are accurate, Isco could prove to be a real bargain if snapped up at that price. He’s got bags of talent and at only 20, he has plenty of time to develop further. Will Chelsea or City make their reported interest official next month? Let’s wait and see but i’d love to see Isco plying his trade in the Premier League some time soon.
