According to talkSPORT, Manchester United are the latest in a long line of vulchers circling menacingly around Malaga C.F.

Their financial difficulties have sent them into meltdown and now Santi Cazorla is an Arsenal player, Isco could follow suit.

Here's the low down on Isco and why he'd be a great signing for Sir Alex Ferguson.

Depth needed

Isco can play in a flat midfield four, in a slightly deeper role or an advanced midfield role. His versatility brings Manchester United great flexibility, but more importantly would fill an immediate need.

Fans have been crying out for a Javi Martinez-esque signing this summer as the defensive midfield needs help. Paul Scholes is no long-term solution and Michael Carrick can't do it on his own.

Ideal for anticipated switch in formation

It is widely expected that Fergie will change his formation this season. To accomodate new signing Shinji Kagawa, he must include a central attacking midfield role in the lineup.

Slotting Isco in at holding midfield next to Carrick or Scholes is ideal. It allows Kagawa to play an expansive, free role in attack and provides United with an assured passer in the middle of the park.

United's tendancy to give up possesson easily last season was alarming and they were, at times, dominated on away soil. Isco goes a long way to stopping that.

Cheaper than most

With Malaga's well-documented financial issues, players are leaving the club for their true market price - no inflations, no absurd clauses.

Javi Martinez would cost at least €40 million, Daniele De Rossi the same. Isco, for around £10 million, is a complete steal.
