Juventus 'step up pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Isco'

Juventus are reportedly ready to step up their pursuit of Isco as they prepare a £66m bid for the Spanish playmaker next year.

Juventus have reportedly made Real Madrid midfielder Isco one of their main transfer targets.

The 27-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Bernabeu, playing the full 90 minutes on just three occasions from 27 La Liga appearances last season.

Speculation over his future has consequently been a constant theme of recent transfer windows, and Calciomercato reports that Juventus will launch a bid to sign him next year.

Madrid were unwilling to let Isco leave this summer in the hope that he would prove to be an important player during the 2019-20 campaign, but he has since started just one match.

Juve may be forced to wait until next summer rather than January to get their man, with the report claiming that a bid of £66m could be enough to prise him away from the Bernabeu.

Madrid have been linked with big-money moves for the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba in 2020 and would need to raise significant funds if they are to bring in any of that trio.
