Manchester United Transfer Report: Red Devils Interested in Spanish Star Isco
Manchester Untied have been linked to several high-profile stars over the summer window and it seems that Spanish international Isco is the latest player to be named on the Red Devils' potential transfer list.
According to a report in The Daily Mirror, United are trying to lure the 20-year-old winger to Old Trafford from Malaga—whose current financial problems mean that they are willing to listen to offers for the starlet.
Manchester United are chasing the signature of rising Spanish star Isco. Isco is considered to be one of the brightest talents in his homeland and, after scouting him, United have made discreet enquiries about his availability.
United will now wait to hear whether or not the youngster is open to a move and what it would take to land him.
A formal approach could even follow this week.
Malaga's current financial predicament—essentially that they have incredibly large debts outstanding—has forced the club into selling some of its top players already this summer, such as Salomon Rondon and Santi Cazorla.
According to The Guardian, Malaga must get rid of these debts before the start of the season or they will be relegated to Second Division B, lose their UEFA license as well as the ability to play Champions League Football. This would obviously be a huge blow on all fronts for the Spanish club, so, clearly, getting rid of the debts is necessary this summer.
And after seeing what Arsenal have done to almost steal Cazorla from Malaga (per The Telegraph), it is natural to assume that Sir Alex Ferguson has tried to do the same with Isco, who was recently in London for the 2012 London Olympics.
The star midfielder is rumored to have a £16-20 million buyout clause in his contract (per The Metro) but given Malaga's need to sell, United could offer a figure well below that and potentially pick up an absolute bargain during the summer transfer window.
Is Isco worth trying to bring to Manchester United this summer?
