Denis ‘would like’ Isco as teammate

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez would welcome Real Madrid’s Isco at the club, should he decide to make the sensational switch.

Reports suggest the 24-year-old former Malaga star could run down his contract in June 2018 and move to the Camp Nou on a free transfer, which would see him become the first player to switch between the clubs since Javier Saviola in 2007.

"Of course I would like to have Isco as a teammate, all good players are welcome in our team,” Suarez told Cadena Ser radio.

"Isco has an incredible talent but right now he is under contract with Real. We have to wait and see what happens. If he doesn't sign a contract extension, then we can talk."

Saviola moved to the Bernabeu on a free transfer after his contract at Barca expired, with the last player making the direct move the other way being Luis Enrique in 1996.
