According to Don Balon, Cristiano Ronaldo is increasingly convinced the Spain international will accept an offer from City after being promised a key role in Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side.

City could certainly do with Isco as a long-term replacement for David Silva in that creative midfield role, and Ronaldo is also said to be willing to see his club let the 25-year-old go.

This may further boost City’s hopes, following reports from the Daily Mirror that the former Malaga man was being targeted in a £75million move.

Real Madrid’s Isco is expected to accept a transfer to Manchester City

Isco has shone in fits and bursts for Real Madrid but has not been as much of a regular in the starting line up this season, though he did hit a hat-trick for Spain against Argentina in midweek.

There’s no questioning Isco’s ability when he’s on form and full of confidence, and it may be that a move is now needed for him to fulfil his true potential.

Many top players have improved under Guardiola and Isco seems another who would thrive in the Spanish tactician’s system.
