Chelsea and Manchester City target Isco has revealed he’s willing to leave Malaga in order to help the Spanish club’s financial troubles, according to talkSPORT.

Malaga are enjoying an excellent season on the pitch after qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League and moved to within seven points of Real Madrid in the La Liga table with a 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday. However, their fortunes off the field aren’t so positive and the cash-strapped club have been forced to sell the likes of Rondon, Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal in the last 8 months in order to balance the books.

talkSPORT claim they still need to generate further funds and prized-asset Isco – who’s understood to have a £30m buy-out clause in his contract – may be sold in the summer with Chelsea and Manchester City both said to be interested.

The 20-year-old has put the Premier League duo on alert after admitting he’d be willing to leave to help save the club.

“I am ready to sacrifice myself for the good of the club,”

“I would have no problem in accepting an offer to help Malaga to recover.” Isco is quoted as saying by talkSPORT

The Spanish starlet signed a contract extension just last month and it seems the insertion of a hefty release clause may insure Malaga are able to demand a large fee if and when he’s sold.
