Mourinho wants a Real Madrid player for Manchester United in January


The Red Devils have not started well the season. Despite winning the first three games, Manchester United had a terrible past week and they lost all three games against Manchester City, Feyenoord and Watford. José Mourinho is not happy at all with his players and he has criticized publicly some of them, especially Luke Shaw.

The Portuguese manager is not happy will Wayne Rooney. The English captain is still playing but he’s far away form his best performance and Manchester United need another top-class footballer to be the playmaker. For this reason, José Mourinho wants Isco Alarcón in the team as soon as possible, according to The Daily Mirror.

The British newspaper published that Mourinho wants to put Rooney on the bench and sign Isco Alarcón in the winter transfer window. The Portuguese knows that the Spaniard is having few opportunities at Real Madrid in the start of the season so he might be willing to change club in January.

Isco arrived to Real Madrid in 2013, just when José Mourinho left the team. Carlo Ancelotti was his first coach at Madrid and Isco played really well in the first seasons. However, his performances are getting poorer and he has lost the space in the initial squad. Isco has been unlucky as well this season because he got injured in the ankle, losing the possibility of fighting from the beginning with the other midfielders. Apart from losing his place in the team, Isco has not been called for the Spanish national coach for the Euro and the last games for qualifying to the next World Cup -he was injured-, so he might be looking for a new club to have more opportunities to play.

According to the press, Real Madrid could listen offers for the Spaniard in the next transfer window. The Spanish team want at least £25M, so they cover the amount of money paid to Málaga back in 2013. However, Real Madrid have been banned to sign new players by FIFA, so it would be strange if the club decides to sell Isco now.
