Spanish source Fichajes.net claims that Manuel Pellegrini is ready to make the talented young Spaniard one of his top targets for the next transfer window, with City in need of strengthening after a poor start to the season.
Isco has been in fine form at the Bernabeu this season, establishing himself as one of the team’s most important players and becoming a regular for the Spanish national side.
Still, a big-money bid may be enough to lure him away, with City boss Pellegrini keen for a reunion with one of his former players at Malaga.
