Real Madrid midfielder Isco is not seeing eye-to-eye with manager Carlo Ancelotti and will most probably leave the club if the Italian stays.
Spanish daily, Marca, reports that Isco has fallen-out of favour with Carlo Ancelotti and it is believed that the two are not seeing eye-to-eye. When Isco moved to Real Madrid from Malaga in 2013, he took up Mesut zila s role in the midfield and started the season on a very good not. However, after change in formation and Iscoa s dip in form, Di Maria replaced him and the Spaniard was relegated to the bench. The purchase of James Rodriguez this season also put Iscoa s name down the pecking order despite Di Maria leaving for Manchester United.
This season, Isco has been playing regularly, but mainly because of the various injuries Ancelotti has had to cope with. When the whole squad is available, Isco has to take his place on the bench and that has not gone down well with the Spaniard.
When Ancelotti started Ramos in the midfield for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Atletico, Isco was not happy with being on the bench while a defender played in the midfield. a I thought I was doing a good job over the last few months and ita s not easy to sit on the bench all of a sudden.a He said after the game and when asked whether he was upset with his role, Isco responded: a Not upset, but not very happy either.a
It is believed that these comments havena t gone down well with Ancelotti and the two have had a fall-out since then.
Manchester City and Arsenal are believed to be alerted by Iscoa s situation. It is also being said that Arsenal are ready to fork out A?32 million for the midfielder. However, Isco has played under Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga and Manchester City is the more likely destination that the 22-year old will prefer. City also tried to sign Isco in 2013 but the Spaniard chose Real Madrid over them.
