Isco Alarcon   Manchester City will make a offer for Isco Alarcon. Sources closed to the player can reveal. The English team remains very attentive to the situation of the Malaguese player, who’s not having a great time in Real Madrid. The European Under 21 Champion is not in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. He hasn’t been in the starting lineup and of course, he is not happy with his current role in the team. However, I Sports Web can reveal after speaking to sources in Madrid and Malaga that, despite the constellation of stars that Manchester City has the team still interested in taking Isco. The signing is a priority to Manuel Pellegrini like last summer. If the transfer takes place the player would step in Etihad with open arms and the money is not going to be a problem for City. Manuel Pellegrini this passed week expressed how much he misses Isco: “I would like to have him it would be very important to him to be next to me.” Pellegrini that day also added some spice to this possible summer transfer, “He is in the path to be a world-class footballer, but he is not playing with the regularity needed to become one. He has the conditions, but he must play to get into the mental and physical development of a world-class player.” Last summer it was a reality that Isco was going to be for Man City. What happened in those days in Israel? The Merengues already had a first contact on May 22 at the Bernabeu with the player. They spoke with the player’s father and his lawyer and representatives of Málaga . At that time , it was clear for Isco he was moving to Manchester. Pellegrini had promised him to be starter. Isco was not looking for money, he was looking to have minutes in whatever team hired him. The Chilean manager already had a spoken agreement with Málaga to get Isco. However, Concha Espina wanted to make a last-minute attempt with Real Madrid based on Isco’s performance that season, and with the approval of Ancelotti the transfer to Real coud happened and at the end it happened. In Israel, The Merengues had enought inside to make Isco go to Madrid instead of England. Real used their players who were with him in Israel: Nacho, Carvajal, and especially Morata who shared room with Isco. The promises of minutes in Madrid for Isco have not been fullfil and today,he is a substitute for Real Madrid. His future seems clear now, the transfer can take place to Manchester City. He is no longer the undisputed player to be starter. The presence of Benzema, Bale, and the emergence of Jesse took Isco to a anonimous place. In addition, Ancelotti’s system 4-3-3 is a problem for his game. He doesn’t fit into any position because Isco is a playmaker. The City is not the only team that is aware of Isco’s situation in Madrid. Milan has also have shown their interest in Malaga, and other important clubs in Europe too. Isco will have options to depart from Madrid this summer. Many teams will offer money for this talented midfielder, but maybe in Manchester City he can find himself again. Pellegrini wants him and has promised him he will be playing as long as he is the manager in City.
