Manchester United are eager to bring Malaga winger Isco to Old Trafford this summer, according to Metro.
The tricky midfielder played a key role in helping the Andalusian side finish in fourth place in La Liga last term and was included in Spain’s preliminary squad for Euro 2012 before being omitted in the final cut.
However, with Malaga facing a financial meltdown the Spanish side need to sell their star players, with Santi Cazorla poised to move to Arsenal and Salomon Rondon wanted by a host of European teams.
United are set to take advantage of the situation and make a move for Isco, who has a £16 million buyout clause in his contract but could be available for much less than this.
The Red Devils have already signed Nick Powell and Shinji Kagawa this summer, whilst negotiations with Sao Paulo over a deal for Lucas Moura are continuing.
