In another recent development, Arsenal have been dealt a setback in their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
As we have previously reported, the Gunners are interested in the disgruntled Spaniard and the player himself was eager to leave Santiago Bernabeu. The 23-year old was considered to be unhappy with the lack of playing opportunities under Rafa Benitez.
But, the situation has changed now following the sacking of the former Liverpool manager. Yesterday, Real Madrid announced that Zinedine Zidane will take over from Rafa Benitez at the helm of Los Blancos.
Now the change of management has supposedly changed the mindset of the player, and he wants to give one more try to his career with the La Liga giants. Even Zidane might change the transfer plans at the club and will like to give opportunities to all the players to prove themselves at the start.
Isco has also been linked with moves to Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea. It has been reported that Real Madrid are demanding a transfer fee of £ 35 million for their player.
Isco joined Madrid from Malaga in 2013 for a transfer fee believed to be around €30 million.
