Milan are interested in signing Isco from Real Madrid according to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Football Italia. It’s thought that the 29-year-old Andalusian could be gotten for a fee in the region of €20m; his contract with Madrid expires in June of 2022 and the club are loath to lose him on a free.
Isco, il Milan ci crede: lo stesso talento, ma il prezzo cala https://t.co/OGzEl4XYaX

Isco missed out on Luis Enrique’s La Roja squad for Euro 2020 this summer and didn’t hit the thousand-minute mark in La Liga last season, registering two assists and failing to score. An exit seems best for all parties; Milan enjoy a good relationship with Madrid and their new coach, former Milan man Carlo Ancelotti.
Paolo Maldini and Riky Massara are said to admire Isco, on his day an enviably talented creative midfielder who’s contributed 51 goals in 336 appearances for Madrid. Milan are also close to signing Brahim Diaz from the Spanish giants; he’s expected to be close to returning to Italy on a loan deal with a €22m option to buy. Madrid will retain a €27m buy-back clause in the deal.
