Carlo Ancelotti reacts to Isco transfer speculation
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has distanced himself from speculation linking Isco with a potential move to the Toffees in January.
Isco has endured a tough time at Real Madrid this term and he has made only one appearance from the starting lineup to date.
Hence, his future has come under the radar and it was recently claimed that the playmaker would fancy a reunion with James Rodriguez and Ancelotti at Everton.
Speaking after the Toffees' 2-1 defeat at Newcastle United, Ancelotti described the Spaniard as a fantastic player and added that he has good memory of their time together.
However, he emphasised that he is currently focused on the club's situation and the onus remains on getting his players ready for the weekend's Premier League clash against Manchester United.
"Isco is a fantastic player and I have a fantastic memory of him but now I am not, honestly, focused there. I am focused on an important week we are going to have to recover players and to be well prepared for the game against United," He told.
Everton started the season in fine fashion with four victories on the bounce, but they have recently suffered a dip with just one point from three games. They will be hoping to return to winning ways on Saturday.
