Isco, who is struggling in Real Madrid, may be heading to the Serie A to team up with Italian giants, Juventus.

Isco would like to play more games but it is hard for him to reject Real Madrid’s contract offer.
According to, Juventus will struggle to sign Isco in the summer as the talented midfielder could extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu even if the Serie A giants had already attempted to sign the highly rated Spaniard.
In January 2016, Juventus made contact to sign the 25-year-old. At the time Real Madrid were struggling under Rafa Benitez and nobody was really happy at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Juve tried to make the most of the club’s difficult situation but the Merengues blocked the player’s exit and went on to win the Champions League with Zinedine Zidane a few months later.
