Isco plays coy on Madrid move

The Spain international is being chased by Manchester City but Malaga's Liga rivals are leading the race, and the attacking midfielder tried not to give much away
Malaga attacker Isco has played coy on links suggesting he will join Real Madrid this summer.

The Spain international, who on Thursday was named in the Under-21 squad for June's European Championship final, is also a target for Manchester City, the club which current Rosaleda coach Manuel Pellegrini is leaving La Liga for.

However, the Santiago Bernabeu side remain in poll position to snap up the highly rated 21-year-old, whose current contract at La Rosaleda runs until 2016.

When asked by Spanish television channel Cuatro about the Madrid interest, he said: "We’ll see, let’s see what happens..."

Blancos director Francisco Aguilar revealed on Thursday that a transfer deal for Isco is a long way from completion and is aware that meeting his €35 million buy-out clause will be mandatory.
