Attacking midfielder Isco, 21, is unsettled at Real Madrid as he is not a first choice under Carlo Ancelotti. The Spanish international had agreed to join City last year and be re-united with his former Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini. But Real then hijacked the deal – and City refused to get involved in an auction increased by agent fees allegedly driven by Isco’s father. City boss Pellegrini was upset at the time – as is Isco now at his failure to establish himself at Madrid. Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti has told Isco it’s a situation he’ll have to deal with. The player – whose full name is Francisco Roman Alcaron Suarez – is now deciding on his future and it’s believed he would seriously consider a move to City.
