Premier League giants Chelsea have to contend with Italian Serie A champions Juventus in their chase for unsettled Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
This is due to the news that the Italians are targeting Spanish international star Isco as part of a sensational three-player transfer swoop.
Italian media outlet Tuttosport say that Juventus are planning transfers for three players namely Real Madrid playmaker Isco, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and Ajax Amsterdam Matthijs De Ligt.
This is coming just some few weeks before the start of the winter transfer window.
Real Madrid playmaker Isco is said to be unsettled at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu having been reduced to a bit-part under new manager Santiago Solari.
He has not really light up the Bernebeu like it was expected following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Spanish international player has a release clause of €700m which could make a transfer almost impossible for suitors like Chelsea and Liverpool unless Real Madrid want to sell him.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is fed up with life under manager Jose Mourinho and he’s looking for a transfer away from the club.
A return to Juventus will definitely appeal to him due to his affiliation with the Old Lady.
Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt is one of the brightest young prospects in Europe and it’s not surprising that clubs are queuing up to sign him.
