Done deal? – £70M midfielder heading to Chelsea?

Premier League giants Chelsea have reportedly beaten Arsenal and Manchester City in the race to sign Real Madrid ace Isco during the upcoming winter transfer window. The Blues have identified the Spaniard as a primary target and are willing to offer Real Madrid a bid in the range of £70m. Isco will be offered a massive wage of £250,000-a-week if he agrees to move to London this January. Reports also claim the 26-year-old will be offered a four-and-a-half year and a massive signing fee as a part of the deal.

Isco is growing frustrated at the Santiago Bernabeu because of lack of game time and is hoping to get out this January. Arsenal are still evaluating a bid, while Manchester City want to wait till the summer. The 26-year-old has not started a single La Liga game since Santiago Solari replaced Julen Lopetegui at the end of October. Hence the Spaniard will opt to sign for Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea who are right now playing some wonderful football.

Maurizio Sarri is reportedly a huge admirer of Isco and plans to use him alongside star player Eden Hazard. However, Chelsea will have to be wary about his fitness as he looks out of shape and was even booed by the Madrid supporters during their defeat in the Champions League to CSKA Moscow. Real Madrid President Florentino Perez and new manager Santiago Solari both are waiting for the right offer to sell the player.
