Real Madrid midfielder Isco has joined Gestifute, the agency headed by super-agent Jorge Mendes – and it might be in Wolves’ interests to consider a move for the star.
According to AS, the player has linked up with Mendes, who has facilitated several transfer deals for Wolves in recent years.
Isco, 30, has is out of contract at the Bernabeu this summer.
He will not continue at the club, and he has enlisted the help of Mendes to find him a new team.
Real Betis are said to want him, but the player has more substantial suitors bidding for him.
This season, Isco has made just 13 appearances for Madrid.
His influence and stature has been on the wane for some time.
He has been with the club since 2013 when he signed from Malaga, and has clocked up 352 appearances in total so far.
Given he has now joined the Gestifute agency, perhaps Wolves ought to consider making a move for the 38-cap Spain international.
Wolves need to sign a midfielder this summer, regardless of whether Ruben Neves leaves or not.
There have been no permanent additions to the engine room since Leander Dendoncker, and Bruno Lage needs someone who can make things happen.
Isco has respectable statistics of 53 goals and 56 assists in his 352 games for Real.
He is someone who occupies those spaces in between the lines, which Bruno Lage has often talked about as being very important to exploit.
Free Isco swoop should be worth Wolves’ consideration
Surely Wolves have to consider a move for Isco if he’ll cost nothing in terms of a transfer fee.
He may no longer be a key player for Madrid, but he still has a lot of quality and creativity that could really serve Wolves well.
He’s comfortable on the ball and looks to make things happen in the final third.
Wolves don’t currently have an out-and-out attacking midfielder. And Isco is an experienced one.
Isco is also capable of playing out wide if needs be. In that sense, if Wolves don’t buy Francisco Trincao, then he could also serve as a replacement for him.
Given the goalscoring issues Wolves had had again this season, making a play for Isco might not be such a bad idea.
