Spanish star takes swipe at Zidane as looming exit means that Chelsea can FINALLY secure transfer deal?
Chelsea target Isco has taken a swipe at Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, claiming that he is being ostracised by the Frenchman.
Now we all know that Chelsea have been on the trail of Isco for many seasons now, and a number of bosses have all failed in their attempts to get him to leave Madrid and seek a fresh challenge in the Premier League.
However, he is edging closer to s future move away from the Spanish giants after he came out and hit out at boss Zidane, as The Spain midfielder has not featured for either of Los Blancos’ last two outings, the 3-1 Clasico victory over Barcelona on Saturday and the stunning 3-2 Champions League loss to Shakhtar Donetsk three days earlier.
It is a situation that the former Malaga man is not happy about, and if it continues, he will seek to leave the club in the coming windows, and he has not done anything to dampen the speculation surrounding his future at the club
“If he has to take me off, he takes me off in the 50th or 60th minute of the game. Sometimes even at half-time,” the player complained on Movistar+’s ‘El Partidazo’ program. “If he has to put me on, he’ll do it in the 80th minute.”
Look, Isco is a brilliantly gifted player and one signing that would add a bit more creativity and quality to this Chelsea attack, so even though the Blues need to add some more quality to that back-line, how could they miss out on trying to sign Isco if he comes onto the market?
He has proven himself as one of the very best attackers in the game, when he is given a chance, and with all the speculation linking Jorginho or Ngolo Kante with a move away from the club, Lampard may need an instant replacement.
We are not saying that Chelsea need the player, all were saying is that if reports are true and he could leave Madrid, then it would be foolish not to even make a transfer move for the Spaniard.
