Real Madrid are planning to sell Isco in the winter. The Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti has asked the Premier League club to move for the Spain international, taking advantage of his current situation at Madrid. Everton already signed James Rodriguez from Los Blancos last summer.
Everton could offer around 20 million euros (18 million GBP) to convince Madrid to sell, according to Fichajes.net. The market price of Isco is around 30 million euros -- although as recently as 2018 he was valued at 60 million. He has a contract at the Bernabeu until 2022 so this could be the moment to sell with the club trying to balance its finances to adjust to the coronavirus crisis.
Coach Zinedine Zidane's hardly used Isco this season. His role has become testimonial. Ancelotti, the former Real Madrid boss, is aware of the situation and wants to use it to Everton's advantage. He feels he can get Isco back to his best.
However, Everton may have to offer more, with Madrid holding out for 25 million euros. Although everything could depend on Zidane, who prefers to do business in the summer and may not want to lighten his squad further.
Sevilla have also shown an interest in Isco but only on loan and Madrid are not interested in a loan.
