The Spanish midfielder Isco is said to be close to a departure, while his contract ends in June 2022. Real do not seem to want to extend it, especially in view of the incident which occurred this Sunday between him and his coach.

On the bench Sunday evening facing Granada, Isco is sent to warm up with his teammates Jovic and Camavinga. While Carlo Ancelotti calls back the French and the Serbian to bring them in, Isco gets angry and goes back to sit on the bench rather than continue his warm-up in order to come back perhaps a little later. If Ancelotti directly calmed the game by finally bringing in the midfielder, the Italian media Calciomercato announces that the damage was done and that Isco « has reached a point of no return » vis-à-vis the Merengue club.

At the end of the contract next June, Isco was already thinking of leaving before this incident. Little used this season (2 starts and 5 starts), the Spanish midfielder understood that the club was not really ready to extend it. Arrived in 2013, Isco today interests Italian clubs like AC Milan or Juventus, who wish to recruit him free in June. The Spaniard, who has never played elsewhere than in Spain, could be tempted by Serie A. But the plans of the Madrid club are different. While they want to secure the services of Leicester defender Wesley Fofana, Real Madrid may well try to include Isco in the transaction this winter so as not to have to pay the € 60m claimed by the English club. It remains to be seen whether Leicester will accept the offer and whether Isco sees himself playing well in England. For his part, Wesley Fofana admits that Real Madrid is one of the clubs that make him dream.
