Juve want Isco to replace Pirlo?

Reports in Italy are claiming that Juventus have set their sights on replacing Andrea Pirlo with Real Madrid midfielder Isco.

The veteran is set to leave the Bianconeri for MLS side New York City, who also have former Barcelona and Spain attacker David Villa on their books, and the Gazzetta dello Sport claims the 23-year-old has been identified as his rightful heir.

Isco enjoyed a breakthrough season at Madrid in 2014-15, adopting a deeper role in Luka Modric’s absence, but Carlo Ancelotti has since been replaced by Rafa Benitez, and it remains to be seen whether he figures in the new Coach’s plans.

Manchester City have also been linked with a move for the ex-Malaga and Valencia starlet.
