Mundo Deportivo: Barça eyeing audacious move for Isco

Real Sociedad-Barcelona Live

Catalan sports daily Mundo Deportivo leads its front page on Saturday with the surprising theory that Barcelona are monitoring Isco’s situation at Real Madrid.

Contract talks on hold

The story stems from Isco’s instructions to his agent to shelve any negotiations over an extended contract at the Bernabéu while he seeks assurances over his future playing time. Mundo Deportivo notes that Isco could join Barça as a free agent when his contract expires next year, and receive a juicy signing-on fee as a result.

First team role unclear

Isco arrived at Real Madrid from Málaga in 2013 and, now in his fourth season, remains on the fringes of the first 11 despite a run in the side recently due to injuries.
