Antonio Conte Pep Guardiola

Chelsea are favourites to sign Real Madrid midfielder Isco ahead of Premier League rivals Manchester City, report Manchester Evening News.

The reigning champions will almost certainly be surrendering their crown to City come May. In reality, we forfeited the title some time before the turn of the year.

It’s disappointing, but we have little little to sit and cry about it – we need to spring into action in the transfer market to ensure the void between ourselves and Pep Guardiola’s side does not grow any further.

Players of Isco’s calibre are exactly what we should be in the market for. The Spain international is the dictionary definition of world-class and would walk straight into Antonio Conte’s starting eleven.

Man City’s reported interest is, of course, a concern, but they have plenty of cover in that area. Perhaps the guarantee of being able to play on a weekly basis at Stamford Bridge could appeal to Isco, who has spent large periods of his time in Madrid among the substitutes.
