The Real Madrid champions are slowly crumbling. After Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and earlier Iker Casillas and Pepe, the Royal Club will be left without another important member of the team that has dominated Europe for years.
Isco broke. And Zinedine Zidane doesn't mind either: it's time to say goodbye. The Spanish media have no dilemma, the guy who played in all four won finals of the Champions League will no longer sit on the bench. He told his boss that he wanted to go, he is only 28 years old and he can still give a lot.
Zizu didn't overdo it or try to convince him to stay. After all, Isco played only 260 minutes this season, he only spent more than an hour on the field once. He did not even enter the field in the Champions League. "If he puts me on the team, he takes me out after 50 minutes.
And when he puts me in, it is in the 80's", Isco protested during the Classic with Barcelona, while the cameras were filming him, so Zidane was later able to use those old phrases that he is glad to see ambition in the players…
His price: 60-70 milion euros
Realistically, he doesn’t see him on the team, he raises his hand for Martin Odegaard.
And it is smarter for the club to make concessions now, next summer Isco will enter the last year of the contract, so now is the time to sell. For how much? This is not exactly known, although the Madrid media are even dealing with the requested amount of 60,000,000 to 70,000,000 euros.
Manchester City and Juventus were also mentioned this summer, although Everton is now the most current, regardless of the denials of Carlo Ancelotti, who previously resurrected James Rodriguez. But Caramel would hardly give more than 30,000,000 euros for Isco.
It is important for Real to fight and his salary, which varies between 6,000,000 and 7,000,000 euros. Because this "crown season" will have consequences for the club budget. And Real will have to significantly rejuvenate the team next summer.
He still hopes for Kylian Mbappe. The champion generation has done its thing. A good part of the team that brought four European crowns to the Royal Club has already left. When Isvo leaves, a few of the most persistent will remain.
Sergio Ramos of course, then Luka Modric, Toni Kros, Rafael Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Dani Carvajal, Karim Benzema… And that is it. Now is the time for some younger forces.
