Real Madrid playmaker Isco has made it known to the club that he would like to leave in the January transfer window, according to AS.

Los Blancos have yet to receive an offer for the Málaga-born player but are willing to listen to clubs who are interested in signing him for the right amount. In recent days, there have been rumours of him linking back up with former boss Carlo Ancelotti at Everton, although the Italian coach was quick to call these reports ”nonsense”. Isco’s contract runs until 2022 and is valued at around €30 million, according to Transfermarkt – the same price he cost from Málaga in 2013.

Marco Asensio and Martin Odegaard have both returned to Zinedine Zidane’s squad after injury and a loan spell away and both are ahead of Isco in the Madrid pecking order. In the recent 4-1 defeat to Valencia at Mestalla, Isco started in midfield but failed to make an impact on the night.
