Chelsea have plans to bring in Spain international and playmaker Isco from the Santiago Bernabeu come January as they are prepared to lose Oscar to Juventus. The Brazilian World Cup star has been on the radar of the Turin giants since the summer transfer window, and is now close to making that move come winter having dropped down the pecking orders behind the trio of Willian, Hazard and Pedro. He has been sparsely used this season and has started most of the games on the bench.
Massimo Allegri has been on a squad-rebuilding mission after losing Pirlo, Vidal and Tevez during the summer transfer, and will now finally push a move through for the arrival of Oscar. The Brazil international registered his name on the score sheet on Tuesday evening in the Champions League when Chelsea hosted Tel Aviv in the Champions League fixture that ended in 4 – 0.
Isco is frustrated with Benitez style and his frustration erupted in the El Classico where he was showed a red card:
He was also a used substitute last weekend when Chelsea defeated Norwich City by a lone goal. The Blues were planning on getting Pogba from the Serie A giants in summer, in a deal that would have seen Oscar go the other way.
Chelsea want Isco to come in as a replacement for the versatile player if he departs, and the Spaniard will be looking at a reunion with Mourinho at the Stamford Bridge. He was a favorite of the Portuguese in Madrid, and with his lack of regular playing time under Benitez’s reign, a move away from Spain looks certain.
