AC Milan to rival Man Utd for Isco

AC Milan to rival Man Utd for Isco

Milan join Isco chase

Serie A side AC Milan will offer stiff competition to Manchester United in the pursuit of Real Madrid playmaker Isco. The Spain international is expected to leave Los Blancos in January in the search for regular playing time.

Isco, 24, had been the subject of a loan approach from Tottenham Hotspur over the summer but he decided to stay put in a bid to force his way back to the first-team.

However, he has since struggled to earn 90 minutes of competitive action with Zinedine Zidane preferring the likes of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez ahead of him in the pecking order.

Calciomercato suggests that the 24-year-old may have multiple offers to choose from in January with the Rossoneri being the latest to express interest in his signature.

Manchester United and Serie A champions Juventus are among the other clubs in the running to land the former Malaga man.

The Spaniard's struggles at the Bernabeu were evident earlier this summer after he was left out of Vincent Del Bosque's squad for the European championships.
