Real Madrid to try swap deals with Chelsea and Manchester City in potential transfer blow to Arsenal

Posted by

Real Madrid are reportedly keen to try and use Isco in potential swap deals with either Chelsea or Manchester City for Eden Hazard or Kevin De Bruyne.

According to El Chiringuito journalist Eduardo Inda, quoted by Don Balon, the Spanish giants are not happy with Isco and want to try and offload him.

The Spain international has certainly not had the best of times at the Bernabeu, especially this season after falling out of favour under Santiago Solari.

Still, having long looked one of Europe’s top playmakers, it would not be too surprising to see Isco get a chance at a big club in the Premier League or elsewhere.

In fact, Isco could be an ideal direct replacement for Hazard or De Bruyne given the roles they play at Chelsea and City, respectively.

However, this could be bad news for Arsenal, with the Independent linking them as admirers of the 26-year-old attacking midfielder.

Given Madrid’s interest in Hazard and De Bruyne, this could see Arsenal miss out on Isco and see him move to one of their biggest rivals instead in a double blow.
