The international break really might just be the start of Chelsea’s turnaround, as it seemed to have not only afforded them a rest and opportunity to go back to the drawing board, but also helped served as an avenue to determine the future of Real Madrid’s player, Isco, who could end up at the Stamford bridge after Jose Mourinho watched his performance in the Spain-Ukraine Euros qualifiers.
The 23 year-old has always been a Chelsea-target, but wasn’t really paid much attention until the match. 90 minutes was all it took him, and Mourinho was convinced afterwards that he could come really handy in Chelsea’s squad, prompting him to give Roman Abramovich the go-ahead to pursue his signature.
Isco has always been a favorite of both men since the start to his time at the Bernabeau in 2013, but nothing was seemingly working out as touching a transfer up until now. Despite a lack of regular playing time due to the class of talents that abound at Madrid, the attacking midfielder has grown into a fine player, and he has proved it over and over again. Manchester United have also been monitoring the Spain international for a while, and Chelsea may have for themselves a fierce rivalry in the course to bring the player to their side.
The former Malaga player has all the enviable statistics. 15 chances creation from midfield, the 2nd highest in Madrid, 225 successful passes and 88% pass rate thus far in 7 League games, definitely a type of player Chelsea could do with. But they will have to wait till January to get him if they so desire, however, tabling a strong bid as early as possible isn’t far from a reality
