Arsenal and Chelsea eye shock £63m Isco transfer as Real Madrid look to raise funds for summer splash

ARSENAL and Chelsea are both eyeing up a shock move for £63million-rated star Isco as Real Madrid look to raise funds for a summer spending spree.

Above all else, Los Blancos are eyeing up an audacious, record-breaking move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe this summer.

But first they will need to find the cash, with in-demand Isco, 27, one of many stars set to be sold.

Reports in Spain claim no fewer than FOURclubs are chasing the Spanish midfielder this summer – with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City amongst them.

PSG themselves are also pursuing the playmaker – and could lead the way to land him if they sell Mbappe to Madrid.

The France superstar is almost certain to quit the Ligue 1 giants this summer, so PSG may be wise to sell to Real in order to get something in return.

Isco – who joined the club from Malaga in 2013 – has often left on the bench despite his obvious talent.

But the Spaniard has been reborn this season after a 2018-19 to forget.

His row with then-boss Santiago Solari saw him axed from the first-team squad.

But under Zinedine Zidane he has been playing – and thriving – playing in two-thirds of the available LaLiga minutes in 2020.

Isco is under contract until 2022 and Madrid could opt to sell while he still holds strong value – currently rated at around £63m.

While PSG are hoping to sign him, El Desmarque claim a move to England is more likely.

Tottenham and Liverpool have also been linked with Isco in years gone by, but as far as this summer goes, they appear to have not lodged fresh interest.
