The latest Real Madrid transfer news includes Manchester City trying to sign Isco, Casemiro returning to the Santiago Bernabeu and Los Blancos keeping tabs on Sergio Aguero.
Spanish sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo has revealed Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has made Isco a priority target for this summer transfer market. The former Los Merengues manager has long tried to convince Isco to join him at City and this time he’s willing to launch a crazy bid.
Isco is not a guaranteed starter and it seems possible that Pellegrini could persuade him to move to the Premier League. Yet, Florentino Perez is not willing to let the young Spaniard go no matter the offer, so it seems highly unlikely that negotiations could come to a good end.
City and Real could also be involved in other talks. With Chicharito Hernandez leaving Madrid, Los Blancos are looking for a striker and they are expected to give Aguero another try. Perez has failed to bring the Argentinian to Madrid in all his previous attempts. Yet, Spanish newspaper AS has reported the Los Merengues president will try again this summer.
Aguero isn’t as happy as he could be in Manchester and he could be seeking for a way out. However, this time Madrid might not be one of his preferred destinies, since he wouldn’t be guaranteed the starting striker role with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad.
Casemiro closing on Madrid return
It is not official yet, but Casemiro will very likely return to Madrid after holidays to become part of the squad for next year. The Brazilian has spent this season on loan at Porto, performing at a spectacular level and helping his team reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Porto wanted to sign him on a permanent deal but Spanish press has reported that Rafa Benitez wants him in his team. Yet, depending on what players arrive this summer, Casemiro could leave again on loan before the season begins.
