AS reports that Real Madrid will let Isco leave for £71.2million as they look to keep the costs of their summer spending down.

The Spanish midfielder is one of the most technically gifted players on the planet and would increase the quality in central areas for Liverpool by a big margin.

He was linked with a move to Anfield in March, with Tuttosport suggesting that the Reds had put his name on their summer transfer wishlist.

With Real Madrid spending a fortune in signing Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao, they need to make some space in the squad for the new signings.

Marcelo, Isco, Asensio and Gareth Bale are all likely to leave this summer and Jurgen Klopp should pounce to sign Isco as the world-class playmaker will be available for £71.2million, according to AS.

 

After Philippe Coutinho joined Barcelona last season, Liverpool have been lacking a creative midfielder capable of producing a moment of magic to change a game.

Isco can be that player for Liverpool, with his excellent passing, dribbling and finishing all desirable qualities for the Reds.

There isn’t a player in the world that would provide for Klopp a better a like for like swap in terms of style after selling Coutinho and you could actually argue that Isco is the better player.

£70m+ might be a lot for Liverpool to swing but if it attracts Isco, who is now in his prime, it might be a masterstroke from the Reds.
