Isco will be Ancelotti’s 1st Real Madrid signing

Posted on June 22, 2013 by admin

After weeks of uncertainty and concern about the managerial situation at Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti is finally free to take over at the Santiago Bernabeu. The tide is now turning for Madrid, and the mood of optimism will now get another boost, because the young midfield star Isco has agreed to join the club this summer.

Francisco Ramon Alarcon Suarez has been trying to decide whether to follow his mentor Manuel Pellegrini out of Malaga and La Liga altogether and try his luck in the English Premier League with Manchester City. According to both Marca and AS today, however, the lure of Real Madrid and continuing his meteoric rise in La Liga and the Spain national team was just too tempting to turn down.

The 21-year old was the undisputed star of the recent under 21 European Championships, dazzling with his intricate close control, driving runs and all-round play. He will now join the tournament’s golden boot winner, Alvaro Morata, in the Ancelotti revolution at Madrid. The move has not been officially completed yet, but has been agreed in principle, so it is just a matter of time and paperwork.

The transfer fee is around 30 million euros for Isco and he will be given a five year contract. Now who is next?
