Chelsea preparing to splash out big money on Liverpool target
Chelsea are reported to be planning a raid on Real Madrid this summer. The Blues, who have been linked with a move for a host of Real Madrid Stars, including James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata, have now set their sight on long term Liverpool target, Isco.
Isco have been reduced to a squad player under Zinedine Zidane, and the Spaniard is not happy. His future is up in the air and he may leave the Bernabeu despite calls from his coach from him to sign a new deal. He has been involved in only 23 league games this season as Zidane continues to prefer other midfielders on the club’s books.
Chelsea have not signed a replacement for Oscar who left the club for China in January, and they believe Isco is an upgrade to the Brazilian. They are ready offer him his desired £8.5 million annual wage demand.
Chelsea are already planning for a busy summer, and the club wants to make sure they start moving for their targets now to avoid losing out to their rivals when the summer transfer window opens.
