Real Madrid star urges club not to make transfer raid on Chelsea

Posted by

Real Madrid midfielder Isco is reportedly not keen on the ideal of his club sealing the transfer of Chelsea defender David Luiz as speculation mounts over the Brazilian’s future.

Luiz is not currently playing regularly for Antonio Conte’s side, leading to links with a number of clubs ahead of the January transfer window.

The Daily Express claim he’s a target for rivals Manchester United, while Don Balon have today claimed Barcelona could be interested as well.

Still, if Diario Gol are to be believed, Luiz has already agreed terms on a move to Real Madrid, possibly on an initial loan, though Isco hopes the club consider alternatives.

According to Don Balon, the Spain international feels unconvinced by what he’s seen of Luiz at both Chelsea and PSG throughout his career.

The 30-year-old is widely viewed as having improved tremendously since returning to Chelsea last summer for a second spell.

However, he was inconsistent for both Chelsea and PSG earlier in his career, earning a reputation for being more comfortable going forward than actually defending.

Conte now seems unsure about him again after recently leaving him out in a number of games, with youngster Andreas Christensen shining in his absence.

This could spell trouble for Luiz at Chelsea, but it may be that his move to the Bernabeu is not all that straightforward either, with Isco reportedly preferring the club to focus on younger players in that position.
