Real Madrid are the latest side to join the pursuit of Malaga playmaker Isco, director Francisco Aguilar has confirmed.
Manchester City have been strongly tipped to bring in the Spaniard over the summer, but Real have now thrown their hat in the ring.
"Real Madrid are interested in signing Isco, but nothing is official yet," Aguilar told Sky Sports News.
"It fills us with pride that a lad who has come through at Malaga has become the player that he is now.
"If he leaves Malaga it will be to a big club and it will be to the benefit of the coffers at Malaga. Clubs that want him will have to meet his buy-out clause."
