SirBalon 2,692 Posted May 16, 2019 Share Posted May 16, 2019 There is all sorts of speculation surrounding Real Madrid CF ever since Ajax spanked them 1-4 in the Santiago Bernabéu and ending a 3 year reign as kings of Europe. Sacred cows ("Vacas Sagradas"), meaning heavyweights in the squad have been targeted as possible victims of a possible end to an era and even though Isco Alarcón hasn't been one of the players criticised or selected by the media and fans, he is known to have a history of feeling unsettled at the club but continuing to finally sign contract extensions. His buy-out clause is forbidding at €650m (€970m if Barça want him) and this is where the latest news is a reason to make the headlines... The rumours are that Isco has managed to convince the club to listen to any interest from select clubs around Europe and to negotiate without quoting the buy-out clause. With the more than possible arrival of Eden Hazard from Chelsea, Isco doesn't want to share anymore playing time with anybody or simply just being part of rotations. So who could it be? Some are suggesting a swap with Hazard seeing as Chelsea would need a player of this type and they are involved in a ban. Could a swap be the loophole in the ban and manage to get one of Europe's eternally most sought after midfielders? Liverpool have popped up recently in the Spanish sports press as actually having enquired as to the possibility of Isco being made available for negotiations and not to be thrown into the crazy buy-out clause. Barbie football club, Paris Saint-Germain always get a mention when very expensive footballers are thrown into speculation arena. But that would surely be Isco throwing away his career and just looking for an easy life and earning big money which he does now anyway. German powerhouses Bayern Munich are returning with receipt in hand and warrenty still in effect, the faulty Colombian James Rodríguez... Apparently he doesn't deliver what's mentioned in the description at the time of "purchase"... Could they go in for Isco? Their name is certainly in there. FC Barcelona are obviously being mentioned in most of the articles this week but of course, Barça are involved in various very expensive transfers already and any action taken for Isco is forbidding... Plus Real Madrid would surely direct them to the buy-out clause with a special price included just for Barcelona. Isco is a known Barcelona fan, but that train passed surely. Finally... Arsenal who are in dire need of quality! Ok, I know, haha... But there was a time when we were connected to players like these. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
