Malaga starlet Isco ‘ready’ for Premier League switch
Malaga midfielder Isco has confessed that he is willing to move on in order to save the financially stricken club.
Despite being owned by Qatari billionaire Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani, the Spaniards are in a state of financial turmoil, with spiralling debts forcing the sales of a number of star players.
Arsenal have swooped for both Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal in the past two transfer windows, whilst Venezuelan star Salomon Rondon was also sold on.
Even with the high profile departures, they are still in need of funds, which has led to speculation that Isco, who has been instrumental in their domestic and European success this term, could be moved on.
Although he has declared that he wants to stay at La Rosaleda, he confessed that should his £30m buyout clause be met he’ll do all he can to help the club:
“I am ready to sacrifice myself for the good of the club,” he is quoted by talkSPORT via AS.
“I would have no problem in accepting an offer to help Malaga to recover.”
Isco joined Malaga in 2011 from domestic rivals Valencia, due to a lack of first-team opportunities.
He has flourished in the south of Spain, forcing himself into the national team, despite a wealth of talented players occupying his preferred position.
