Manchester City are eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Isco. The Daily Mail says City are monitoring Isco's situation at Real Madrid after the European champions completed the signing of James Rodriguez from Monaco.

The move could leave Isco surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu just a year after he chose Madrid over City.

Manuel Pellegrini, his former Malaga boss, remains keen on the 22-year-old midfielder although a deal this summer could be difficult with City restricted by a UEFA-imposed transfer cap and foreign quota limitations.
