There has been a twist in the transfer of Everton target Isco.
Isco to Everton links have been flying all around, featuring on every news feed of a Toffees fan. The 28 year old is said to be wanting out of Real Madrid and is keen to join James Rodriguez and Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison. Isco has fallen down the pecking order at Santiago Bernabeu, prompting to a January exit.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has given a green light to the sale of the Spaniard as the Los Blancos intend to raise £18 million from the sales. The Toffees can swoop in for the former Malaga man but Carlo Ancelotti has so far shut all the links and denied that the Toffees are looking into the prospect of signing Isco.
Regardless of what Ancelotti tells, the Royal Blues will have a gem on their hands if they succeed in signing Isco. The Spaniard has seen how James Rodriguez has come back from the dead and blossomed under Ancelotti once again.
The 28 year old is also going through a rough patch in his career and reunification with Ancelotti can help him re-track his career. However, there has been a major twist in Isco transfer talks.

According to French publication Le10 Sport, Isco’s agent has poured cold water over Everton’s hopes of signing the Spaniard. The player’s agent said that his client is not evaluating any offers at the moment and wants to stay at Real.
We are not studying the offers and the idea is not to leave Madrid.
If this comment is to be deemed credible, the whole saga becomes questionable. If Isco is not looking to leave Real Madrid and wants to fight for his place, there’s no point in discussing about a potential move to Merseyside.
Isco is also being watched by Juventus, but none of these transfer talks would make sense should the Spaniard intend to stay at Santiago Bernabeu. This will surely be somewhat of a blow to the Toffee fans as they highly anticipated a January move for Isco.
However, this is football and nothing is set in stone. Things could change very soon as we inch closer to the winter transfer window.
Will Isco make a move away from Madrid?
