Chelsea’s new boss Guus Hiddink inherited a team of world class players no doubt, but the steam that saw them conquered the Premier League last season seem to have evaporated and Hiddink is keen on bolster his team.
Reports according to London Evening Standard are in the claim that Chelsea are closing in on a deal dubbed as the shocker of the winter. Spain International and Real Madrid versatile midfield schemer is on the radar of Chelsea as the Blues look to complete a £30 million deal for him.
The prospect of playing regularly for Los Blancos became restrained since Rafa Benitez took charge at Chelsea. Although, Rafa Benitez has been sacked. Isco became frustrated and wants out of the Santiago Bernabeu. Chelsea are keen on taking advantage on his situation.
Chelsea’s midfield had been in disarray before Hiddink took over and the Dutch tactician is looking for quick fixes.
Despite playing fewer games, Isco has been more productive than all the midfielders of Chelsea, per Squawka.
“Young star who joined Real Madrid from Malaga in 2013 plays as an attacking midfielder, this season Spaniard appeared in just 13 La Liga matches, he has scored 1 goal and registered 3 assists. Isco has completed 379 passes this season with a pass accuracy of 89%, of which 57% were forward passes. “
Isco may be not called up by the Del Bosque for the Euro Championship if doesn’t play regularly. It is most likely to favour a move.
