I think it’s about time we cut to the chase and concentrate on the Spanish television programme who initially broke the news regarding Real Madrid and their sensational attacking midfielder’s MCFC link.

This is what El Chiringuito TV say about Isco and links to Manchester City FC.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty – we known Isco’s manager, Zinedine Zidane is not exactly a fan of his 25-year-old playmaker. But what we don’t know is why?

Shall we start at the beginning?

How much has Isco played at Real Madrid this season?

Isco scored a hat-trick for his national country against Argentina the other day, however, what was interesting is what he said post-match.

He claimed he has little confidence of getting a regular first team place under Zidane and because of that he was suffering, mentality. On the other hand, when playing for Spain he claimed he felt alive and full of confidence.

@JorgeCalabres: ‘CITY wants ISCO and has already sent a message through GUARDIOLA.’

‘GUARDIOLA has told ISCO that in the CITY he would always play and be a leader.’ The information @JorgeCalabres in #ChiringuitoIsco

Not too sure if the following translation is precisely what was said!!

@ICano7: ‘The only thing that would convince ISCO would be that GUARDIOLA ate him a lot the’ coconut ‘. #ChiringuitoIsco

DAILY MIRROR ‘ announces that CITY and CHELSEA are ‘alert’ with the situation of ISCO. It counts @plazacasals in #ChiringuitoIsco

Look out! ‘MANCHESTER CITY wants ISCO and GUARDIOLA told him that he would always play and be a leader.’ Information from @JorgeCalabres en #ChiringuitoIsco.

Based on what El Chiringuito TV said, now we find numerous UK media outlets spinning their own stories.

What to believe?

Isco would, more than likely be a long-term David Silva replacement. Okay, I get that, but what about Ilkay Gundogan, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and the current crop of City’s youth players trying to break into the first team. Surely the club could save themselves around £100m in any potential transfer fee if they decided Isco wasn’t needed.

Whether Isco leaves Real Madrid will depend on a various set of scenarios, but, as these sort of things tend to play out, the story will no doubt die a death.

Would I like to see the Spaniard playing in a City shirt?

As the ‘Churchill Dog’ would say – ‘oh yes!’
