Amidst a major regime change and a thus-far disappointing third-spot placing on La Liga table, more changes appear imminent for Real Madrid and they very well could begin with frustrated Spain midfielder Isco during January’s transfer session. Chelsea, also a club desperate to make a run in 2016 and after a coaching change, appear to be a possible destination, according to Daily Express.
Fourteenth-place Chelsea are in no desperate need for a playmaker, but changes may be in store for the defending champions. With Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas perhaps on their way out this summer, Isco might be a solid contributor in the both the short-term and long-term.
A top talent who has struggled to find first-team duty at Santiago Bernabeu, Isco is considered one of the hot commodities of the transfer market. While a deal in January might be a stretch, it's possible Chelsea swoop in for a deal with Real Madrid in the midst of their possible restructuring.
Manchester City and Juventus are also reportedly interested in signing Isco. The 23-year-old has also been linked to Arsenal in 2015.
