EPL transfer news: Man City encouraged by Real Madrid over Isco

Manchester City have been given encouragement in their pursuit of Spanish midfielder Isco ahead of the 2019/20 season.

City boss Pep Guardiola is reportedly a big fan of the 27-year-old and sees him as an eventual successor for stalwart David Silva. Silva is set to leave City at the end of the next campaign.

Onda Cero says Real have assured City they're prepared to do business at a price of €80m.

Real need to sell after spending over €300m so far this summer, which included the signing of Eden Hazard from City’s Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Isco would cost a reported €80m.

For his part, Isco is keen on the move, having come close to joining City before moving to Real Madrid from Malaga six years ago.

Isco, who started his career with Valencia almost a decade ago, has also racked up almost 40 caps for the Spanish senior national team.
