One of the players who is not having too many minutes is Isco Alarcón. In Real Madrid squad there are many players with similar characteristics like James Rodríguez, Kroos, Modric, Kovacic and Asensio and it’s quite difficult be in the in the starting 11.
According to Marca, one of the teams that are interested in Isco’s services is Tottenham Hotspur. Mauricio Pochettino focused in the Spaniard midfielder because he knows he is not having minutes and it’s a good moment to sign him. Such is the desire of the Spurs to sign Isco that they want to get him in the winter market. Pochettino thinks that the midfielder from Real Madrid it’s an strategic signing and that he will give more level to his squad. He believes that Tottenham can’t miss the opportunity to sign a player with the quality of Isco, taking advantage the bad moment he is having right now.
Tottenham’s president Daniel Levy, has taken note of the reports of his coach and he is considering ro sign him in winter’s market instead of summer because this can reduce the competition with other clubs and live a new experience. The last negotiations were tense between Tottenham and Real Madrid for the transfers of Modric and Gareth Bale and this one could be another difficult negotiation. Tottenham intest in Isco is not new and even the Spurs were the favourites according to the bookmakers to sign the Spanish player.
Isco said last week that his desire is to stay in Real Madrid but if he doesn’t have minutes he will be force to sign for another club. The Spaniard midfielder only has played 127 minutes so far in the season. Isco has not been in the starting 11 for the important matches with the three managers he has had in Real Madrid: Ancelotti, Benítez and Zinedine Zidane. He knows that it is his problem and that he must improve a lot if he wants to triumph in such a huge team as Real Madrid.
