Eastlands appears to be player’s most likely destination.
Malaga midfield player Isco has called new Manchester City head coach Manuel Pellegrini his “footballing father”, although the youngster has also warned the big-spending Premier League outfit that Spanish giants Real Madrid are also keen on signing him this summer, says the Daily Mirror.
The in-demand Spain international has been tracked by City for over a year now, with previous boss Roberto Mancini keen to buy the 21-year-old last summer.
However, Isco has enjoyed yet another eye-catching campaign for the high-flying Spanish outfit, shining in both La Liga and in the UEFA Champions League, netting 12 goals in his 46 matches in all competitions for Malaga last season, including nine strikes in 36 league encounters.
And it is those kind of attacking numbers that have led to a tug of war between City and Los Blancos for his signature, with Isco confirming that: “My future nobody knows. Pellegrini is my footballing father, who gives me confidence – so you have to think about City and look at it.
“And Madrid? There is that, so we see what happens.”
