Liverpool Interested In This Real Madrid Superstar: Should Klopp Go All Out For Him?

It is not every day that a player is chased by every single top club in Europe. However, then again, not every player can bring the world to his feet with a ball. Isco of Real Madrid is a star at the Bernabeu and has helped the club to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League final. They are due to meet Liverpool on the 26th of May, 2018 and the tie will have more weight now as Liverpool are reportedly one of the many suitors who want Isco.

The Reds will, however, have to fight off German giants Bayern Munich, Italian powerhouse Juventus, English rivals Arsenal and Manchester City who are all keen on signing the player. The fight with City could prove to be difficult with as Guardiola is said to be a keen follower of the Spaniard’s game.

“Isco is not happy with the current Real Madrid because he is not considered essential,” Spanish journalist, Eduardo Inda said. “His intention is to listen to offers after the 26th and he will do it even if he is the owner. It is considered undervalued and will listen. [Pep] Guardiola loves him since he was coach of Barcelona.”

Such claims by a reputed journalist like Inda will certainly cause a ripple effect in the transfer market which might or might not push the deal towards Liverpool. However, if the words of the player himself are anything to go by, then the move is unlikely to take place. “I feel very important and valued in Madrid,” he said. “In the end all the rumours that Isco is leaving and he is not happy are a lie.”

Isco has a starring role at Real Madrid but head coach Zinedine Zidane’s habit of rotating the side on a frequent basis has meant that almost no one has been able to get a string of games in the side. This might interest Liverpool who will be able to offer Isco a starting role in their team.

The central attacking midfielder will be able to scoop up the empty space left behind by the departure of Philippe Coutinho and become the focal point of the Reds’ attacking front. He would be the ideal orchestrator and creator of goals behind the trident of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Isco is still in his mid-twenties and Liverpool will easily be able to get years of top quality football out of him. Moreover, a ball playing midfielder like Isco will be the perfect addition for a Jurgen Klopp side which likes to Gegenpress off the ball and move swiftly once they retrieve possession. The only problem that remains will be convincing Madrid to sell their prized asset.
