Manchester United Transfer Rumors: Red Devils Must Bolster Future with Isco
We already know that Manchester United has one of the best teams in Europe. But with the addition of Spanish Under-21 star and current Malaga attacking midfielder Isco, the Red Devils would go a long way to ensure that the future is bright as well.
It looks like Manchester United is ready to pounce on the financial woes of Malaga and add the Spanish starlet. From Metro:
Old Trafford officials apparently wish to gauge his level of interest in a move to the Premier League and, if they receive a positive response, will make a formal bid.
Isco, who cost Malaga £4.7 million when he moved from Valencia in July 2011, has a £16 million buyout clause in his contract.
Manchester United has already added some excellent young talent this summer, landing 23-year-old midfielder Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund and 18-year-old forward Nick Powell from Crewe Alexandria. Isco would only sweeten that future pot.
Like many of the young Spanish players coming up through the ranks, Isco is technically sound, poised on the ball, possesses excellent control and vision and is creative and accurate with his passing.
However, he also has the potential to be a solid goal-scoring threat from his attacking midfield position. He had six goals and four assists in 40 appearances for Malaga and the Spanish Under-21 side last season. And while he didn't make a huge splash in Spain's Olympic debacle, he did start all three games for his country.
You can never have too many young stars on your squad. And as Manchester United fans will tell you, you can never have enough depth in the midfield either. The team saw Tom Cleverly and Anderson suffer injuries, turning to veterans like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick to hold down the central midfield position.
Manchester United should pounce on Isco.
And they did so well.
But adding more youth to the rotation, both for now and especially for the future, must still be a priority for the Red Devils. A player like Isco is ripe for the taking given Malaga's uncertain future—Manchester United must strike now.
It may not help them immensely now, but in a few years, Red Devils' fans will look back fondly on the summer of 2012 as a time when the team set an excellent foundation to win trophies for years to come.
