Several reports have suggested Chelsea could move for the Spaniard with Eden Hazard being linked with a switch to the Bernabeu. Meanwhile, Hazard has on several occasions publicly said that he idolises the Frenchman.
Zidane said there was no one thing he could change so that a team that, in recent weeks, has lost at home to Villarreal and Leganes - and drawn with Celta Vigo and Levante - would get back to the level they showed when winning La Liga and the Champions League less than 12 months ago. I was asked before [during the January transfer window] why weren't we going to sign anyone. I want Isco to spend all his career here. He a very good footballer.
That would no doubt be attractive to a player who is certainly not the main man at Real Madrid. We know the reality we have. Bayern and Juventus are unlikely to pay the kind of fee Madrid would like to get for him, while Arsenal are likely to miss out on the Champions League and so would not appeal to the player. "We know a big game is coming, but we have worked well all week and are ready for tomorrow".
According to Spanish outlet AS, journalist Josep Pedrerol believes Zidane is very disappointed in Isco's form this season and given that he let James Rodriguez leave the club because he believed in the Spanish playmaker, he does not feel his faith has been repaid.
"My dad says some bad things", Hazard said, per Nizaar Kinsella for Goal.
All of which makes it seem a bit like Isco isn't quite a flawless fit for any of AS' supposed top suitors-too pricey for Bayern and Juventus, unlikely to accept Arsenal, a questionable fit for Klopp, and surplus to requirements for City just as he now seems to be at Madrid. We must try and be more consistent. "We can turn this around, as we have the capacity to do that".
