Carlo Ancelotti will be in dreamland if Marcel Brands manages to reach a deal with Real Madrid for Isco, which could threaten Tom Davies’ future at Everton.
Which is the word?
According to The reason, Isco has turned down the opportunity to meet former Los Blancos and Spain coach Julen Lopetegui after rejecting a possible transfer to Sevilla for financial reasons.
The 28-year-old has decided to cut his salary to continue his La Liga career, as the Andalusian team could not match his 6 million euros per season (104,000 pounds per week). salary despite having to pay the remaining 3 million to sign Isco.
Does Ancelotti need to sign Isco?
Yes, Everton need more creativity
Well Carlo has enough midfielders
Isco has further rejected the possibility of joining Andrea Pirlo’s maiden voyage as Juventus coach, feeling that Serie A would not be the most suitable for his talent and he would rather join a league more to his liking in the January window.
Madrid are looking to ditch Isco on loan this winter with the potential prospect of a permanent deal for the summer and with the midfielder snubbing two exit routes, the Premier League appears to be the most likely destination.
Ancelotti reportedly ‘dreams’ of reuniting with the 38-game Spanish international with Spain after their time together at the Santiago Bernabéu, despite recently discard reports of a movement in a fiery response.
Hi Isco, bye Davies?
While Ancelotti was quick to dismiss speculation of a move for Isco last month, persistent rumors linking the Italian to an attempt to bring the Real Madrid outcast to Goodison Park suggest there is interest from the Everton manager.
Isco has received dribbling minutes in the Spanish top flight from Zinedine Zidane this season, who has called up the £ 18 million talent – valued as high as £ 81 million in 2018 – a start three La Liga matches while winning the remaining 121 of his 306 minutes in five substitute appearances.
The four-time Champions League winner has yet to register a goal or an assist, while scoring a measly average of 0.5 key balls and 0.5 shots per league game, including zero accurate crosses, 1.1 successful dribbles, and 18.1 accurate passes in half of the opponent. , by SofaScore.
Ancelotti welcoming Isco to Merseyside, despite his recent form, would surely spell bad news for Davies, who has been excluded from the Italian’s plans this season with only one of his two The Premier League starts to date arriving in his natural midfield role.
Davies was called up to play as a right-back in last Saturday’s 1-0 loss at home to championship champion Leeds United, and had played just 18 minutes of top-notch football outside of his starting role in the 4-4 win. October 2 over Brighton and Hove Albion.
Ancelotti clearly does not rate Davies to a high standard, and would surely be looking for a replacement for the Toffees product if Everton forges efforts to sign Isco in January.
