Chelsea and Isco
Chelsea are ready to make a massive move for Isco.
The Real Madrid player has been unhappy at the club for some time.
Now, under Solari, Isco has decided he wants to leave.

Chelsea are keen to land him, with Maurizio Sarri a big fan.
The Mail even claim Isco is ready to snub offers from Man City and Arsenal.
That’s because Chelsea want him now, and Isco is desperate to leave Real Madrid.
Chelsea aren’t short of money, and they’ve repeatedly shown willing to back managers in the transfer window.
£70 million is a big sum, even in the current market.
That’s especially true considering Isco is 26 years old, and will be 27 in April, meaning he’s at the peak of his powers but won’t be around forever at the top level.
Real Madrid changes
Real Madrid may have Solari for now, but there could be another change come the summer.
Managers are never fully safe at the club.
Now, with Jose Mourinho free and ready to join a new club, some managers will be nervous.
Mourinho knows Real Madrid well, and has a good relationship with Florentino Perez.
Of course, a new manager may change Isco’s mind, but it seems he also has issues with the crowd.
The Real Madrid fans have enjoyed an up and down relationship with Isco, and currently, it’s down.
