Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco once again shone and also got on the score-sheet in Spain’s 2-2 draw with Morocco in their final World Cup 2018 group game on Monday, and a selection of Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the 26-year-old, rated at £67.5m by Transfermarkt.
The Champions League winner once again started in a central attacking midfield role behind Diego Costa for Fernando Hierro’s men on what was a difficult night for them, with Iago Aspas’ late equaliser salvaging a point and a last 16 tie against the hosts Russia.
Isco fired into the roof of the net from Andres Iniesta’s pass to bring his nation level in the first half, and as well as making a number of key passes in the final third, he also did his fair share of defensive work as well – he made three tackles and two interceptions according to WhoScored.com.
Man United supporters, some of whom also want Jose Mourinho to buy another £63m World Cup attacker with one saying “sign him up and sell lazy Martial”, were quick to have their say on the 26-year-old’s display via social media, and while one said “sign Isco now”, another said they “would bin Martial immediately for him to come to United”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Hope United try and sign #Isco. Different class.
