This April 21 is a day marked in red on the calendar of the house of the Alarcón-Sálamo. Isco turns 28 and does so in full confinement due to the crisis of coronavirus, while waiting for the authorities to give the green light to the return of training.
The CSD, The league and the RFEF They have agreed that footballers can return to work, probably already in May, meeting certain requirements and deadlines until training sessions can be carried out with the entire group. While the expected day comes, market rumors are gaining prominence.
At Real Madrid There are several players who do not have a guaranteed position in the 2020/2021 squad. Although it is not yet known when the transfer window for the summer period will open – it has been confirmed that it will not start on July 1 as scheduled – there will be several movements in the White House.
One of the names that remains in limbo within the merengue group, as far as the transfer market is concerned, is that of Isco. The rumors starring Malaga are not new, but an already almost traditional trend every summer, but the coming months could be key to its continuity or its departure.
Until the stop caused by the coronavirus, the white ’22’ had gone from less to more. Since the beginning of 2020, Isco had been gaining prominence to the point of being a titular theorist in big events. The footballer has also benefited from situations such as that of Hazard, thus gaining a place in eleven.
However, in addition to departures, incorporations are also expected in the meringue squad for the coming year. Players like Odegaard they could come back while the name of Pogba resounds strongly in Madrid’s orbit. These arrivals or some others could put Alarcón on the exit ramp.
Zidane, his great supporter
The French coach has always opted for Isco. In the Spain Supercup It was his big bet and he could not have done better. The man from Malaga responded to his coach’s confidence with a goal in the semifinals against Valencia, something that also led him to eleven in the final against him. Atlético de Madrid, which the whites won to take the first title of 2020.
About Isco himself, Zidane spoke last January: “I feel identified with everyone, but it is true that due to their position I feel a little more identified. He is playing and he wants his place, but like everyone. Everyone who has a chance to play has to perform and the players are aware of that and I like it as an Isco player. “
That was not the first time that Zinedine Zidane spoke of the Spanish international and it is that he has always maintained a confident speech before ’22’. In fact, in his day he bet on him to the detriment of James Rodriguez when the debate opened in which of the two footballers should have a more important role in the white team.
The Premier, watch out for Isco
Despite the fact that Zidane has shown a certain weakness for him, even that does not ensure Isco have a place in the future Real Madrid. If in recent years you have been linked with some of the best clubs in Italy or England, is in the Premier League where some of the most important teams would open their doors wide for you.
The Malaga player has a contract with Real Madrid until June 2022. And although there was talk of a possible transfer worth 70 million euros, with the explosion of the coronavirus crisis, the movements of the next transfer window point to being lower it.
The British press has assured that teams like the Chelsea or the Arsenal They will enter into a hypothetical bid for Isco, although the great person interested in taking over the services of the Andalusian, for a long time, is none other than the Manchester City from Pep Guardiola.
Much has been written about Guardiola ‘drinking the winds’ for Alarcón, but City has a handicap: the sanction imposed for which they cannot play European competition. Isco would end up in a team where he will not be able to play the Champions League, but which is a firm candidate to reign in England in the coming years.
