Real Madrid midfielder Isco ‘would love’ Premier League or Serie A…

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes Isco desires a transfer to either England or Italy.

The Real Madrid midfielder has been linked with Spanish rivals Barcelona in recent times but Sky Sports pundit Balague is of the belief that the 24-year-old has his eye on the Premier League or Serie A if he were to leave the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.

Asked on Twitter about the speculation linking Tottenham Hotspur target Isco to Barcelona, Balague said: “I do not believe these rumours.

“Isco was Real's best player against Osasuna in three different positions. He had the highest percentage of good passes (90 per cent) and highest amount of recoveries (12) so he did really well.

“He feels under-appreciated though, with his appearances in the big games limited. He is frustrated but there is nothing wrong with his attitude.

“Spurs thought about making move for him but not in January.

“We will have to see what team he does chose to leave the Bernabeu for because he wants to join a team who can win leagues.

“Both Serie A and the Premier League are destinations he would love to move to."
